Digging into Early Colonial Mexico: Large scale computational analysis of XVI century documents
Congreso Digital Humanities 2018 DH2018
Ponente. Diego Jimenez-Badillo, Patricia Murrieta Flores, Bruno Martins, Ian Gregory
This project focuses on the development and implementation of advanced methods and computational tools for data mining of textual and pictorial documents to answer historical questions. It concentrates on the Relaciones Geográficas de la Nueva España (Geographic Reports from New Spain), compiled between 1577 and 1585 in Mexico and Guatemala.
The project applies a method called Geographical Text Analysis (GTA), which focuses on the geographical components of historical narrative to reveal new, unsuspected patterns of information from textual corpus.
GTA combines Natural Language Processing, Corpus Linguistics, Machine Learning and Geographical Information Sciences to facilitate the exploration, extraction and cross-link of information, in order to discover hidden data patterns and build new historical, ethnographic and archaeological knowledge.
