Parse map coordinates from metadata

The harvest of digitised maps metadata includes a coordinates column that provides a string representation of either a point or a bounding box. This notebook attempts to parse the coordinate string and convert the values to decimals. It then uses the decimal values to explore the geographical context of Trove's digitised map collection.



Using this notebook

To run this notebook using the ARDC Binder service you'll need to log in using an account from an Australian university or research organisation. If you don't have an account, try MyBinder instead.

Run live on ARDC Binder

The MyBinder service doesn't require any authentication, but it can be slow to start and will sometimes fail when busy. If you have a login at an Australian university, you'll probably get better results with ARDC Binder.

Run live on MyBinder

Binder is great for experimentation and quick tasks, but for some projects you might need a dedicated, persistent environment in which to work. There's information on other options in the run these notebooks section.
