Findings

We first discussed if and why it is interesting to have an ODD visualization. It can be useful both during the transcription stage, during which probably the schema continues to evolve; at the end of the process, to check immediatly and intuitive which are the mark-up “zones” where the customization was mainly working; to compare easily different customizations.

We found that the xslt from .odd to .json doesn’t take into account all datas: for instance, if a list of values for an attribute is closed or not and which are the mandatory ones or the suggested ones.

Learning outcomes

Discover the existence of some resources, as the d3 gallery (https://github.com/mbostock/d3/wiki/Gallery) or the tapasproject.org

Use for the first time new resources, as the different xslt stylesheets for TEI.

Most of all: enjoyng the discussion with scholars with different professional skills and approaches.
