For my digital humanities class we used Omeka to create a website to explore how the Grimm Brother’s stories have influenced modern society. Our project is called A Grimm Exploration.

While in the Palladio I was able to make a map showing where each item from the collection is. I was also able to create a timeline showing when each item was added to the collection and at the same time see the map show the increase and spread of the items based on what date was selected on the timeline.

I created a new chart and selected a pie graph to show the percentage of items from a particular city and state. The graph only shows 100 of the top locations where the items are.
