Cool New DPLA Apps

I’m always interested to see new items pop up on DPLA’s App Library. Here are some new apps that deal with data visualization in interesting ways:

DPLA Frequency Map – you can use this to see how the frequency of terms varies from state to state. It would be interesting to use this to search for regional language or foodways!

DPLA Visual Search Prototype – This visual search prototype assigns colors to facets like subject heads and also provides a timeline of term frequency.

DPLA Licenses – This grid provides an overview of the top 575 licenses assigned to materials in DPLA. It is interesting to see the variation of licenses available, and it makes me think more about how confusing it must be to library users when they need to figure out how they can use digital collections materials.
