PaperMiner puts NLA’s Trove on the map!


Paper Miner is an online portal that uses data analytics to provide visualised search results of the National Library of Australia’s Trove newspaper archives. Designed by the Smart Services CRC, the University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology, the portal provides place names and timestamps on all of the Trove archived newspaper articles dating as far back as 1803, displaying geocoded search results in the form of interactive maps and timelines. The Paper Miner project was completed in April 2013 and is now available to users of the National Library’s Trove system.
