The OPTIMETA project is in an important phase: the first release of the developed software has been created and is being tested by the partners. In addition, the start-up difficulties and the biggest problems have been mastered so that the development is running at full speed. In the previous news, the first releases of the OPTIMETA Citations Plugin (https://github.com/TIBHannover/optimetaCitations) and the OPTIMETA Geo Plugin (https://github.com/TIBHannover/optimetaGeo) were presented.
The OPTIMETA team would like to take the opportunity to summarise the planned further development steps. For the OPTIMETA Citations Plugin, we will be working with other partners to publish the citation metadata in open databases. For the OPTIMETA Geo plugin, among other things, an interactive display of the temporal metadata and a workflow for recording already published articles are planned.
OPTIMETA Citations Plugin
- Work with infrastructure partner Open Citations (https://opencitations.net/) on metadata transfer and publication
- Implement connection to WikiData (https://www.wikidata.org)
- Show enriched citations on the journal article pages
OPTIMETA Geo Plugin
- Release October (https://github.com/TIBHannover/optimetaGeo/milestone/5): display of time periods
- Release November (https://github.com/TIBHannover/optimetaGeo/milestone/6): add configuration options for maps (initial extent, background maps), translate map details (e.g., names of layers, editing features), provide API endpoint for spatial and temporal data
- Release December (https://github.com/TIBHannover/optimetaGeo/milestone/4): bonus features as they can be completed, such as entering spatial and temporal metadata for published articles and back catalog issues, support for more Gazzeetters, and deposition of spatial and temporal metadata to public databases
