Here’s a summary of the software that you’ll need to install on your laptops if you’re participating in the Digital Humanities Project Track at BootCamp.

For “Visualizing Time and Space with Simile Widgets and Google,” you will need a Google account (like a Gmail address) so you can use Google Docs. If you don’t already have access to Docs, please sign up before our session starts. Second, you’ll need a text and/or HTML editor. Most computers have one already installed: Notepad is on Windows and TextEdit is on Macs. If you want something with a little more oomph behind it, you could look at the tools at these recommended tools: If you have a tool like Dreamweaver installed, that will work nicely as well.

For “Intro to Encoding Texts,” you will need to download and install <oXygen/> XML Editor. Please note that there is a 30-day free trial for the software, so you don’t need to pay anything.

For “Intro to GIS,” you will need to download and install Google Earth.

In summary, you’ll need

  • a Google account and access to Google Docs
  • a text editor
  • <oXygen/> XML Editor
  • Google Earth
