The PLACE Project is an IMLS-funded initiative of the Library and Earth Systems Research Center of the University of New Hampshire, Durham. PLACE, the Position-based Library Archive Coordinate Explorer, is a University of New Hampshire geospatial data server and search interface that enables discovery of “geospatial ready” digitized cultural heritage materials. Features include a gazetteer search, time slider tool, and the ability to toggle between high and low resolution images. The PLACE Toolkit provides resources for getting started on similar projects, details methodologies for identifying point and bounding box coordinates for non-map materials, provides information on integrating PLACE with Fedora repositories, and outlines technical and skill requirements for using this open source software.
