Over the last few weeks we’ve been really delighted to see that lots of you have been reading the blog, following us on Twitter and feeding back your comments and enthusiasm for the project. We really appreciate the support and we thought that we could probably make a few additions to the website to make it more useful for you particularly while we are still developing the AddressingHistory tool.
So, we have added a new “How Do I Get Involved?” page where you will find a brief guide to what you can do to get involved in the project us and what you will be able to do with the tool when it is launched on the website. We hope you find this a useful addition and would welcome suggestions for any other information or resources you’d like to see here on the AddressingHistory website – or topics you’d like to see us blogging about.
A Quick Project Update
Development of the AddressingHistory tool is progressing well with our software engineer Joe hard at work extracting data from the digitised directories and trying to find the most successful ways to display and filter names, addresses and listings. We hope we’ll be able to bring you a guest post from Joe along with some screen shots of our very early test version some time soon so watch this space.
