Digital Mappa Workshop: Using DM 2.0 for Linked and Annotative Research, Collaboration,
and Publication

Organizer: Martin Foys, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Digital Mappa (or DM) is an open-source platform built to enable people with no serious technical expertise to make their own linked and annotative DH workspaces, collaborations, projects & open access scholarly publications for curated digital collections of images & texts. In April of 2018, a beta 1.0 version of DM was released, along with a host of showcase projects, and by the end of 2018, version 2.0 will be publicly released, featuring an enhanced interface, scaled support for larger collections and sub-collections of digital images and texts, and hybrid integration of IIIF, url-available, and locally uploaded images. For full details of DM's features and capacities, along with links to current projects, please see http://digitalmappa.org.

Using DM to produce sophisticated projects takes relatively little training – through this workshop, participants will quickly learn the core features of the DM platform, be trained in its basic informatics logic, and begin demos of their own projects. Prospective participants will be provided with instructions of what materials to have ready in advance for the workshop, as well as links to already published DM projects, so that they will be ready to start working within the hour. The goal of this workshop is for each participant to leave with the beginnings of their own Digital Humanities scholarly publication, and to understand the power and potential of DM for all humanists, regardless of technical expertise.
