Notebook topics Exploring the API Build a DigitalNZ API search query – experiment with the DigitalNZ search API Getting some top-level data from the DigitalNZ API – poke around at the top-level of DigitalNZ, mainly using facets to generate some collection overviews and summaries Harvesting data Harvest facet data from DigitalNZ – explores what facets are available from the DigitalNZ API and demonstrates how to harvest data from them Harvest data from Papers Past – harvest large amounts of data from Papers Past (via DigitalNZ) for further analysis Tips and tricks Select a random(ish) record from DigitalNZ – examines the available facets, then uses them to reduce the size of the results set until it's possible to select a random record Find results by country in DigitalNZ – find records relating to particular countries by searching for geocoded locations using bounding boxes Visualising collections QueryPic DigitalNZ – a web app to visualise searches in Papers Past over time Visualise a search in Papers Past – create a simple visualisation showing the distribution of a search over time and by newspaper Papers Past newspapers in DigitalNZ – displays details of the Papers Past newspapers available through DigitalNZ Visualising open collections in DigitalNZ – assemble data relating to the usage status of collections and visualise the results in a suitably colourful burst of fireworks!
