NCC Workshop
22 Oct 2015

This demonstration shows how a digital image, in this case a bird's-eye view map of Southern Manchuria, can be set up in a webmap viewer, and combined with annotations. The annotations here are in the form of postal cancellation seals used by various post offices with specific locations. This combination of digital collections metadata and geographic information systems provides a conceptual example for digital humanities.
