The Digital Innovation Lab is pleased to announce the roll-out of a greatly improved version of Prospect – 1.8.4 – and an entirely new website devoted to Prospect and to facilitating its use.
The new version of Prospect offers many new features and enhancements, such as:
- A new feature set we call “Qualified Relationships” (explained in greater detail in this blog post)
- Ability to use shapes and images in several visualizations
- Improved behavior of and controls on Legend and Selection List
- and more …
The new Prospect website offers much more general information about our data curation and visualization platform, an updated manual, sample projects, and more.
We’ve also translated some early projects from the work of the Digital Innovation Lab into Prospect for demonstration purposes, such as the Mapping the Long Womens’ Movement, which illustrates the use of Prospect for visualization of and access to ethnographic recordings, and the Charlotte 1911 Project, which reconstructs the city center of this North Carolina town as it was in the early 20th century.
And more project translations to Prospect are coming! Stay tuned …
