Reconstruction : vue source/en
Eventually, to complement the existing browser, we hope to offer an interface that lets you search sources based on various criteria.
Source browsing is organized into four areas: sources (src), authors (aut), language groups (grp) and language (lng). You can choose the criteria you want to sort the records by using the tags on the top left. On the same line as these tags are the tools that can apply to any checked items. Sorting by sources displays a navigation tree, where each line with a folder represents a natural dataset. These do not challenge the author's arguments for grouping the languages into a single dataset in the first place.
The options on each line of this tree are:
- Click on the folder icon to expand the tree and display the contents of a group.
- The check box, which selects a source or, in the case of a group, all the sources in it.
- Click on the title of a group to display information about the sources of the group in Available Elements.
- Click on the title of a source to display the information on this source in Available Elements.
The source toolbar options are:
|partie à venir searches source criteria.|
- Adds selected sources to Active Elements.
- Displays information about selected sources in Available Elements.
- Displays selected sources in the form of a language tree.
- Displays selected sources on a map.
- Adds a comment about the selected sources.
Available Elements Zone
By default, this zone presents the introductory text of the project and is empty when connected. Click on this button to clear the zone, and on this one to load the list of available datasets. Displaying source information shows the total number of records concerned. The [ALL] button lets you add all of them to Active Elements, and this button lets you add them one by one.
Active Elements Zone
When building a new dataset, the first line will include a yellow flag to highlight the fact that this dataset is not known to the system. As you remove and add sources, the system automatically recognizes available datasets and the flag turns green if you try to build an existing dataset. In the case of identical datasets, a radio button indicates the dataset that the system will use as the source for the following operations. You can change this information by selecting the appropriate radio button. The first line of information signals the dataset you are working on with a green flag if it is original, a yellow one if it has been modified, or the dataset name and this button if there are any comments on this dataset. The list of sources that make up the current dataset are displayed in a frame that can be opened or closed . This button inverts the selection of sources. Each source is listed with a check box (checked by default), the internal source identifier, the author, the year, the name of the language and the number of records for this source. Finally, if the dataset has been saved with a comment, you can find it in the source pad.
Current Dataset Action Bar
The actions that can be run via the toolbar apply either to the individual elements, i.e. the sources (selected using the check boxes), or to the entity generated by these sources, i.e. the dataset.
- This button works only if a dataset has been created. Click on it to pass to "Search in" view that provides dataset search tools.
- Lets you create a new dataset from the selected sources. You can not create copies of existing datasets.
- Lets you update an existing dataset that you yourself have created, by changing the list of sources on the basis of those selected, renaming a dataset and adding or editing a comment.
- Deletes the current dataset.
- Clears the current dataset.
- Deletes the selected items.
- Displays information about selected items in Available Data.
- Displays the topology corresponding to the selected sources.
- Displays the selected sources on the map.
- Adds a comment to the current dataset, if it is present in the database (green flag) rather than just a creation in Active Elements.
- Manage Comments: In all the tool zones, you can access Manage Comments.
- Share sources: In RefLex, you can have your own private sources. This menu lets you share these sources with other users so they can build datasets on them or add comments. Remember, private sources have a limited lifespan: once your research enhances their value, they are made available to other website users.
- Release sources: you can change the status of your sources from private to public, giving them unlimited access on the internet. You can also change the status of work such as datasets, cognate sets, correspondence sets and reconstruction, making them available to the community via the concept of natural datasets.
