Resource: Deployment of the text-mining tool Bilbo on Revues.org

Digital Humanities Now - Tue, 09/02/2014 - 12:30

Bilbo identifies the bibliographic references in journal articles and semantisizes their constituent parts. It then identifies the DOIs corresponding to these references and, where they exist, adds them to the end of the reference as a hyperlink, making it possible to directly access the cited resource. Developed by OpenEdition Lab, Bilbo is now deployed on almost 80% of the journals on the Revues.org platform.

Resource: PlotDevice — Draw with Python

Digital Humanities Now - Tue, 09/02/2014 - 11:30

PlotDevice is a Macintosh application that lets you write Python scripts to generate 2D graphics using simple drawing commands. Under the hood, your code drives the system’s Quartz imaging engine, giving your scripts the same graphical power as a full-fledged Cocoa app. Your code can combine basic geometric shapes, typography, freeform Bézier curves, and a panoply of image formats. This omnivorousness makes PlotDevice ideal for both workaday tasks like image-processing as well as more exotic uses ranging from procedural texture generation to data visualization.

Resource: Faster and Cheaper: Can a Digital-Centric Workflow Transform the Book Review?

Digital Humanities Now - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 13:30
