Anteater

Anteater (annotation tool to extract endangered animals from text resources) is a tool developed by Julia Damerow to automatically extract certain information (such as the species being studied, the field site, and the researchers and institutions applying for the permit) from U.S. regulatory documents related to endangered species research. Dirk Wintergr├╝n, head of Information Technology at the MPIWG, has developed a search and mapping application (based partly on the europeana4D map/timeline viewer) to display the extracted permit data visually.
