    Abstract

    This paper describes the integration of various kinds of historical and geographic information about place-naming and immigration. Information about space, place names and cultural meanings is usually disparate and fragmented in location and time. The digital resource described in this paper addresses this fragmentation by providing an interface that is both searchable and navigable. As a pilot study, it presents a rich visualisation of Irish migration and heritage within the Australian landscape and history. The resource will be used as a foundation structure for the digital collation of other cultures and migrations, internationally. It has proven to be useful for researchers from a variety of disciplines.
