Dating of maps is inconsistent for maps which have a notBefore and/or notAfter. Check them in the sorted gallery, find oddities, and normalize. Did some today.
Did some auditing of the "Marion's transcriptions" spreadsheet that we're using to keep track of the transcriptions awaiting markup, since PCA has been working on these; checked filenames and made updates and notes where appropriate. Also fixed file naming issue reported by PCA, and did some other housekeeping.
JT provided two new maps for the gallery, so I've added those. I had to refresh myself on the procedure for doing this, so I'll detail it here:
I've assigned the first five 1859 documents transcribed by MM to PCA; the 1858 documents are rather complicated, and the existing 1858 documents need some editing, so it's simpler to work on the 1859 documents for the moment. The Google spreadsheet records the status of each document.
The Colonial Despatches is an XML database project which is creating a digital archive containing the original correspondence between the British Colonial Office and the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia. The project lives at http://bcgenesis.uvic.ca, and the web application runs on the Pear dev Tomcat. The XML data is managed in SVN at http://revision.tapor.uvic.ca/svn/coldesp/.
