The proposed two-year program intends to establish an innovative approach to the processing of historical data from the extraction of basic units of information spread across a wide range of primary materials, to their compilation in database format, to their visualization through cutting-edge technology. It is based on the large collection of a textual data culled from four major Shanghai newspapers over a period of sixty years (1907-1966). The main corpora are the advertisements published by entertainment establishments in these newspapers. Aside from integrating these data into GIS server and web mapping, we plan to design new tools to exploit the potential of this wealth of data, especially in two main directions, visual narratives, and dynamic GIS.
