Instructions for How to Use Website
Zoom in or out on your browser to make sure all parts of the website can be viewed. Please enter the following information:
The website consists of two parts: the mechanism for searching can be accessed on the left and the outputs, consisting of a table and map can be accessed using the tabs on the right.
The panels on the left are called ‘filters’. These tailor searches and affect the data that are displayed on the map and in the table on the right. They represent the main method of selecting data. The filters can be selected by clicking on the words written in bold across the centre of the website. When a filter is selected it appears on the left hand side. The filters titled ‘Toponym’, ‘When’, ‘Occupation’, ‘Sect’ and ‘Residence’ will be the most useful at present. The others remain under development.
The order of the filters on the left affects the search that is made. The order of the filters can be changed by clicking and then dragging those on the left hand side up and down. The filters are hierarchically structured from top to bottom. The data that is available for selection in the bottom filter is determine by the filters above.
When the website is loaded the ‘Toponym’ and ‘When’ filters are activated.
