Title:Development and utilization of digital genealogy with spatiotemporal data
Author(s):Guo, Xuemin
Subject(s):Digital genealogy

Abstract:Genealogy, namely, the study of family origins and history. In essence, genealogy is firmly entwined within both the temporal and geographical dimensions. The complexity of spatiotemporal information in Chinese genealogy calls for a better solution for digital curation. Specifically, this research will have a new look at spatial-temporal study of genealogy and propose a paradigm emphasizing the spatiotemporal analysis of genealogy, the formulation of standards that allow interoperability, promoting network-accessible resources, realizing the visualization of family migration routes, and community-building. An online query system would be developed to use Shanghai Library Genealogical Database after being granted access to this database through the application programming interface (API) by Shanghai Library Open Data Platform. The query results are then analyzed with spatial statistics to display on a Web page template complete with Baidu Echart. Some elements are expected to be realized, including content searches, filtering, analysis, interactive viewing and dynamic presentation, incorporation of larger volumes and more complex data, flexibility in integrating content for specific authors goals and intended audiences, possibility of online community input of information, including comments, annotations etc.
