Abstract

This paper describes a prototype geo extension to an open source graph-based tool designed for analysing co-occurrence in large multimedia collections of historical resources. Employing an interdisciplinary approach, combining tools and practices from humanities and geography, we explore how it can be extended to facilitate both social and spatial enquiry. For the prototype development we use Instagram resources that reference the Via Francigena – a significant cultural route connecting Canterbury, UK and Rome, Italy. The resulting tool facilitates dynamic qualitative filtering and multilevel views to explore the social-spatial collective memory of this cultural route
