Hi everybody,

I have release the entire code of the GeoLing app https://geoling.linguistlist.org/ on GitHub now:https://github.com/dcavar/GeoLing <https://github.com/dcavar/GeoLing>

The app as such is probably the first and only app that displays mailing list announcements with geo-reference on a global map. This also means that behind it we have now all posts/issues published via LINGUIST List with geo-coordinates in the meta-data section. This is an interesting corpus for geo-tagging of content. This could be relevant, if you are interested in a corpus with such properties or features.

In the next days LL-Map will follow the open source release, see http://llmap.org/ or http://llmap.org/map/viewer/. LL-Map is an advanced viewer for a corpus of hundreds and thousands of language maps with references and meta-data that we digitized. Have a look at the Viewer interface.

GeoLing is a map service that displays on a global map all linguistics information posted to LINGUIST List - from jobs, to conferences, to internships. The LINGUIST List posts to the mailing list only events of global relevance, but if you want to inform the community about any local events in your area, GeoLing is the tool you want to use. When you submit events to GeoLing, they are not only displayed on the GeoLing map, but also forwarded to all LINGUIST List pages on social media. They are also made accessible via the LINGUIST List Amazon Alexa Flash Briefing service.

Any information that contains geo-coordinates or addresses - when  posted on LINGUIST List (using the structured submission interface on its website: http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm <https://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm>) is instantly mapped on GeoLing and does not need to be separately posted on GeoLing:

If you want to make public information about: - Talks and meetings at your local departments - Colloquium presentations - Workgroup meetings - The office address of your institution, department, program - Book presentations - Language resources, data sets, tools - And other information of local and regional interest submit the announcements to GeoLing!

GeoLing runs on all major browsers and on mobile devices and is gesture-controlled.

To learn how to submit a local event, please visit:http://geoling.linguistlist.org/howto/ <http://geoling.linguistlist.org/howto/>

To add a local event, please visit:http://geoling.linguistlist.org/add/ <http://geoling.linguistlist.org/add/>

The LINGUIST List team will continue to put full efforts into GeoLing and expand its capabilities and features. You are welcome to join us and help us by forking the GitHub repo.
