Viewshare is a free and easy-to-use platform for creating and customizing interfaces (interactive maps, timelines, facets, tag clouds) to digital collections and collection metadata.

Work with your data by generating structured information (like points of latitude and longitude) from plain text place names
Build dynamic interfaces to your collection information, including maps, timelines, and charts
Share the view you create with everyone or with only select individuals
Embed the interface you create into your own website
