Optimizing Discovery of Legacy Sociolinguistic Field Surveys

Converting the Linguistic Atlas Projects to a sustainable, scalable platform.

In an attempt to convert the Linguistic Atlas Projects' web presence to a sustainable system that will allow for scalable, modular technology development, Technical Manager Jacqueline Hettel (Assistant Director, Nexus Lab) is leading the project to transition all of the LAPs data and resources to a Drupal platform. The focus of this project is not only to transfer the LAPs data to a more sustainable solution, but also to develop innovative methods for optimizing discovery and analysis of its amazing collections. The site is currently in beta, with data only being ingested for the LAMSAS project. Anticipated hard launch of entire website is Spring 2015.
