Gazetteer

Gazetteer

Hello,
I was wondering if anybody is using the Gazetteer Module.  If so, what have been your experiences/ thoughts on it?     Are you using it as a stand alone reference, or do you have it linked to a field in another module i.e. Sites, Catalogue?   Did you populate it from an existing Gazetteer, or data from other fields in the d-base or a combination of both?    How do you handle historic names, do you have them in one record, or have you created separate records and associate them together?      Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks,
April

Dear April,

I have just consulted Laura Phillips who used to work in Bristol's Museums, Galleries & Archives about the Gazaetteer Module. Laura told me that in Bristol they used the Gazetteer as a a repository of geographical data making it a reference module.

Thanks Mohammad,
Do you know if they created the records themselves or did they upload/map over an established Gazetteer in to the module, i.e. the Getty's TGN?

Re: Gazetteer

Hi April,

As far as I know they have done the record creation themselves. Although it is possible to perform  an upload of a certain Getty providing one is available.

Hope this helps  :)
