Just a quick post to announce some good news: Google have just announced the first recipients of their Digital Humanities Research Awards and the Google Ancient Places (GAP) project is one of only 12 projects funded worldwide. The project is in conjunction with Elton Barker at the Open University and Eric Kansa at UC Berkeley and we aim to make classical texts available in massive corpora such as Google Books easier to discover using spatial technologies. The project has already started to pick up mentions in the Guardian Digital Content blog and TechRadar. It’s very early days yet so I won’t say too much more at this stage but needless to say, if you are interested in the work, please get in touch.
