The identification of person names, place names and dates is expressed in XML /TEI markup. In addition to identifying and disambiguating these entities, geo-referencing the places, and providing basic information on the people, another layer of markup was added to record semantically simple events that joins these data. We call this markup construct a ‘nexus-point’ because it represents information in the text which connects people, places, and time. Nexus-points in the SGSZ data set are defined in natural language in the form: An event, recorded in the text, by which two or more marked up entities (one or more person(s), a place, a date) are understood to be related. [Pseudo-schema: (person, person+),place?,time? | person, (place | time)?]. Meaning whereever two or more persons are reported to have met, possible with further information about place or time, or one person is said to have been at a certain place during his life time, we mark this event as a nexus point. The nexus point dataset allows for various vectors of analysis: geographic and temporal developments can be explored as well as social networks.[1]

內文之人名、地名與時間皆以XML /TEI標記起來。除了辨識及釐清人物、地點與時間,本專案用標記將這些「實體」組合成簡單的「事件」,稱之為「關係點」(nexus-point),以其匯集書中的人名、地名與時間於一點而得名。於本專案對「關係點」的定義為:由人+人、人+地、人+時,或人+地+時組成。即文中段落指兩人(或以上)產生互動關係。或地點、時間,指出人物所在時、空位置的實體集合。這些資料集可以據以分析其人物之時、空分布,以及社會網絡[1]
