Lear Vizualization

Visualizer 4: Travels

This last visualization is an animated geographic tour of Lear’s travels. Using the same text-based finding guide, the locations were isolated from the guide and automatically geo-located, a tour being constructed along the way. As Lear produces more drawings along the way the points marking each location expand.

About This Visualizer: The Lear Visualizer is a proof-of-concept project executed in conjunction with metaLAB and Houghton Library at Harvard University that works to visualize the rich information and patterns of the text-based finding aid associated with the Lear Landscape Drawings archive at Houghton Library.
