The evaluation of advanced techniques for map processing in order to streamline the cataloging of historic maps in digital libraries.

During our 12-month Tier I basic research project, we will apply automated map-processing techniques to 25 historic maps. We will compare these results with the results through two standard map cataloging methods in digital library projects. We hope to determine whether the Strabo open-source map-processing software can be used to capture the information needed to complete required fields in Qualified Dublin Core metadata records for a CONTENTdm back-end system. This is a common technical infrastructure used in many digital libraries, so our results will have broad applicability.
