PGVis: Digital Public Humanities Software for Visualizing Image Collections

The creation of software to easily allow non-programmers to develop interactive public humanities digital projects.

The Photogrammar Visualization Software (PGVis) is an open-source tool for the visualization and exploration of image collections. PGVis will allow anyone with a collection of digital images and associated metadata to create, with no prior programming experience, their own digital public humanities projects in the form of public websites. In addition to the software, the project will produce six case studies that will model and highlight how the software can be used in a variety of different domains, data sizes, and types of institutions.

Photogrammar Project

Development of a website that would offer new ways of organizing, searching, and visualizing the archive of 160,000 photographs produced by the Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information (FSA-OWI) from 1935 to 1943.

The Photogrammar Project is a Yale University Public Humanities Project designed to offer an interactive web-based open source visualization platform for the one-hundred and sixty thousand photographs created by the federal government from 1935 to 1943 under the Farm Securities Administration and Office of War Information (FSA-OWI). The images offer an archive of American life that is a resource for students, academics, and the public at large. The interactive map will map the one-hundred and sixty thousand photographs over historical county and census data. Additionally, users will be given the tools to be able to construct statistical graphics and visualization from the data. For example, a user will be able to quickly plot the percentage of military images collected by month and location or see a gallery of share cropping images created in Georgia. The Photogrammar Project , all accompanying code and detailed documentation will be available to the public at large.
