Mapping Texts is a collaboration between the University of North Texas and Stanford University aimed at experimenting with new methods for finding and analyzing meaningful patterns embedded in massive collections of digital newspapers.
Using a collection of 232,500 pages of historical newspapers digitized for the Chronicling America project, we have developed two interactive visualizations that allow you to explore both the quality of these digitized newspapers and the major language patterns:
- Interactive Visualization: Assessing Newspaper Quality
- Interactive Visualization: Assessing Language Patterns
- We have also produced a white paper that details the project, our experiments, and our findings.
