Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS portal

During VICODI a web portal of European history was created.

The basic functionality of it is as follows:
Once the user has found (or written himself) an article, he/she can paste the text (or URL) into the on-line contextualisation tool and retrieve the same text with pontextual links in it (as underlined words, phrases, names, years, etc.).

By recognizing certain parameters (keywords, years, names, etc.), the system generates appropriate context both for each hyperlinked word and the whole article.

The user receives the contextual data also in the form of interactive graphical maps. So, if the user pastes (into contextualisation tool) an article about Elisabeth I, the system will automatically generate the 16th century Europe’s map from predefined SVG drawings (embedded in MSKS) and will put links on the map - in places where they belong - individual countries, regions, etc.

The user is able to assess the 16th century situation both in England, the whole Europe and in individual countries. Thereby VICODI provides visually enriched interface to navigate both in place and time.
