The GeoDeepDive project is building a scalable, dependable cyberinfrastructure to facilitate new approaches to the discovery, acquisition, utilization, and citation of data and knowledge in the published literature. In collaboration with the UW Library staff team members, GeoDeepDive negotiates agreements with publishers that allow programatic downloading and mining of published content. UW-Madison’s Center for High Throughput Computing supplies the computational power for processing the documents. While team members are mostly scientists, the concept behind the GeoDeepDive project could easily be applied to disciplines traditionally considered as part of the humanities.
