Neatline - creates exhibits that target scholarly and public humanities audiences

The update and further enhancement of the Neatline tool that allows users of the Omeka content management system to develop geotemporal representations of online collections.

This proposal requests funding for the continued development of Neatline, a plugin for the popular Omeka content management system. Neatline empowers scholars, students, librarians, archivists, cultural heritage professionals, and public humanities enthusiasts to create engaging, sophisticated, and visually compelling geotemporal interpretations of online collections. This proposal focuses its efforts on improving the sustainability of the Neatline codebase, working with the next version of Omeka currently being developed, upgrading the underlying mapping technologies to work better with mobile devices, improving the exhibit editing interface based on community feedback, creating a modern timeline interface based on the work of the Temporal Modelling project, improving the user, developer, and system administrator communities and documentation, as well as creating a compelling interface for integrating long-form scholarly narrative and/or primary textual sources.
