Chapter 17: Repository Map Mashup

Stuart Lewis, Team Leader & Project Manager at Aberystwyth University, will look at the repository mashup map which combines data from open access repository registries (ROAR and OpenDOAR) and geolocation data from a commercial service provider. The resulting data set is overlaid onto a Google map for presentation. Following a description of the site and how it was created, issues and considerations will be discussed such as identifying data which is shared between services allowing the data to be bought together and mashedup, cleaning up data, and comparing human-generated and machine-generated data.
