Introduction to Digital Mappa (DM)
SIMS hosts an installation of Digital Mappa (DM). As described on the project website (https://www.digitalmappa.org/), DM is "an open-source digital humanities platform for open-access workspaces, projects and publications."
On Wednesday, February 21, Dot Porter will be hosting a Zoom workshop about DM for anyone who is interested in learning more about DM and what it can be used for. DM has potential use in the classroom, for individual and group projects; please share this announcement with faculty and staff who might be interested.
The SIMS installation is at https://sims2.digitalmappa.org/, you can go there now to look at public projects we host and to register for your own account ahead of the workshop. At the workshop Dot will talk about how DM was developed, and share her screen while she shows you how to start a project, import images, and create links between images and text.
