Compus: visualization and analysis of structured documents for understanding social life in the 16th century

Abstract : This article describes the Compus visualization system that assists in the exploration and analysis of structured document corpora encoded in XML. Compus has been developed for and applied to a corpus of 100 French manuscript letters of the 16th century, transcribed and encoded for scholarly analysis using the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative. By providing a synoptic visualization of a corpus and allowing for dynamic queries and structural transformations, Compus assists researchers in finding regularities or discrepancies, leading to a higher level analysis of historic source. Compus can be used with other richly encoded text corpora as well.
