Digital Humanities 2019

Humphrey Southall is presenting an update of our work on the GB1900 gazetteer at the Digital Humanities 2019 conference in Utrecht, Netherlands, in the session “Space Territory GeoHumanities” from 11 to 12.30 on July 9th, 2019. This includes a comparison between the final GB1900 data and several other “open”, free-to-use gazetteers of Britain: Geonames, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) gazetteer,  the Ordnance Survey’s Open Names and 50K gazetteers, and the computerised version of the Survey of English Place Names created by the DEEP project.
