Implementation and Evaluation of eCodicology Web Portal - CodiHub

Saginaev, Kayrat

Abstract: The eCodicology is a project which is developing, testing and improving new algorithms to identify macro- and micro structural layout features of medieval manuscript pages. Together with another set of services the eCodicology project was made for humanities scholars in order to enhance and simplify the process of analyzing medieval manuscripts. Because all the services are separated from each other, there was a need to develop a web-portal which would become a central point for them and would combine all their features in a single user-friendly web interface. The eCodicology Web portal was developed with the Java programming language with the help of the Vaadin framework. All the source data, including digitized manuscripts and their metadata, were ingested to the repository. The web portal was provided with a connection to the repository and then it was extended with a visualization framework, which was developed with the help of the D3 JavaScript library. In the end, the project was tested and evaluated among twelve employ-ees of IPE department in Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. The results were summarized and reviewed and it was concluded that the project showed great potential and reached the majority of the goals which were set at the point of project planning.
