Project Update: 4/18/17

It’s been a fairly tumultuous week, as my soon-to-be brother-in-law had serious complications from a surgery. We’ve been in and out of hospitals all week. As I write, I’m sitting in The Johns Hopkins Hospital ICU waiting room.

Needless to say, I’ve been attempting to make progress on my project but it’s been slow going. I’m still trying to go back and edit the items in Omeka and make sure I did the metadata correctly. Also, I am editing them to give better descriptive information.

I am also currently trying to decide which method I want to take in order to get a geospatial component to my project. My professor has given me a few options: Curatescape, Neatline, and the Geolocation plugin.

While I would love to do a Curatescape project, it seems like a lot of work. And it would be the type of work that I would not know how to do.

As of right now, I think I’m going to try to use the Geolocation app. I want to attempt to add it to my project and then see how it would turn out. If I am unhappy with it, I will try Curatescape.

I’m concerned about timing and having enough time to really work on this project. But I am trying. We will see how Geolocation works!
