VIEW PROJECT


Students in Peter Bearman's Individual Study class are using this content management system as a central repository for the media they gather while investigating the funeral industry in the New York area. The site enables them to associate audio, visual, map, and textual information to particular funeral directors. Students and researchers will review each other's work, creating views of data, tagging media, and creating meta data.
