Development of a tool to present the progressions of interrelated items held in an electronic thematic humanities repository.

The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) has collaborated with University of Virginia faculty and others on scholar-driven projects to create electronic thematic repositories for quite a few years. The importance of presenting information out of such a thematic repository as a progression, that is, organized along a particular axis, such as a timeline, has become clear through these collaborations. In two of the scholar-driven projects a custom-designed display process was implemented. The proposed project will design and implement a generalized version of the display process that will allow user interaction with presentations of progressions derived from other thematic repositories much more feasible. The proposed project will also extend the display functionality to allow more than one progression to be presented and thus compared.
