This data is set designed for testing the performance of text/graphics separation and character recognition algorithms on text in scanned historical map images. Thirty one maps from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (1866–1927) were chosen from nine atlases in the David Rumsey Map Collection (http://davidrumsey.com). Most maps are of individual U.S. states, though some are regional and one is of the entire U.S.; most feature little handwritten text. The original MrSid files are converted into uncompressed TIFF images for a manual annotation, stored in JSON format. The authors gratefully acknowledge the David Rumsey Map Collection as the source of the map images, which come with the following notice: Images copyright © 2000 by Cartography Associates.

Roberts, Tyler T., 1960-
Ever since Religious Studies emerged as a distinct area of inquiry in the 1960s and 1970s, scholars in the field have worried about its academic legitimacy. To put it a bit simplistically, they’ve worried about what constitutes the difference between teaching religion and teaching about religion. Text of the 2014 (first) Grinnell Lecture by Tyler Roberts.

Rodrigues, Elizabeth.; Knight, R. Cecilia (Rita Cecilia); Ciota, Rebecca.
Working with faculty and staff to create digital projects requires a complex group of skills and activities. Potential collaborators often jump to the end vision without fully grasping the need for proper description & metadata. Using Google Forms & Sheets is perceived as neutral and less frightening than working in a repository platform or using other proprietary productivity software.

Schneider, Mark B.
The mathematical parallels between electrostatics and laminar fluid flow are exploited to develop a set of exercises that allow introductory physics students to discover Gauss’s Law. The primary fluid experiment involves investigating the continuity equation in two dimensions by examining the flow between two closely spaced plates. Extrapolation of the resulting two-dimensional velocity field to three dimensions reveals a radial dependence to the velocity field that is analogous to Coulomb’s Law. This analogy allows the student to predict an electric version of the continuity equation that is Gauss’s Law.

To promote reproducibility, since 2009 all my empirical research has been cached in a data repository that captures all source code and data dependencies automatically or semi-automatically. Our principle goals are to modularize, document, and preserve all aspects of experimental data. So that others may benefit from or adapt my methods, I provide a bit of motivation and explanation here, along with the full description of the parameters and guidelines of the data repository (provided to my research students) and source code for the utilities.
