Digital Mappa is an open-source tool for displaying, annotating, and publishing images of manuscripts. The ability to make detailed and linked digital annotations on manuscript images is Digital Mappa’s strength, but the platform also provides space for text to introduce, support, or give translations of the manuscripts. Its flexibility makes it possible for researchers or educators to make many different kinds of manuscripts accessible to many different kinds of students and scholars.
This tool talk is part of a longer introduction to Digital Mappa by Dot Porter, which can be viewed here.
