[edit] Description

Recogito, an annotation platform for places, part of Pelagios Commons, is a Web-based tool that makes it easy to identify and record the places referred to in historical texts, maps and tables. Recogito has features dedicated to both stages of the annotation workflow:

  • i) a geotagging area, for identifying place names in digital texts, tabular documents or high-resolution maps;
  • ii) a georesolving area, for mapping those place names to a global gazetteer, supported by an automated suggestion system.

Recogito also provides basic features for cataloguing and managing documents and their metadata, as well as viewing annotations, usage statistics and bulk-downloading annotation data.
