Project: CULTR: a toolkit for tracing the production and consumption of cultural artifacts
With support from IDAH, Matthew Grimes (Indiana University) and Joel Gehman (University of Alberta) are developing a suite of tools for turning the Internet into actionable data for scholars. Specifically CULTR is a cloud-based, software as a service toolkit that can be used for a variety of tasks, from data collection to digital identity monitoring to intelligent assessment (http://www.cultrtoolkit.com). Through its simple web interface, CULTR enables anyone – academics, researchers, journalists, policymakers and citizens – to quickly and easily trace the production and consumption of cultural artifacts across digital media, such as websites, blogs, social media sites and others, both in real time and over time.
