These are Jupyter notebooks designed to run in ‘app mode’ with the code cells hidden. The Binder buttons will automatically open the notebooks in app mode, but you can always view and edit the code by clicking the ‘Edit App’ button.

  • Download a page image
    The Trove web interface doesn’t provide a way of getting high-resolution page images from newspapers. This simple app lets you download page images as complete, high-resolution JPG files.

  • QueryPic Deconstructed
    QueryPic is a tool I created many years ago to visualise searches in Trove's digitised newspapers. It shows you the number of articles each year that match your query — instead of a page of search results, you see the complete result set. You can look for patterns and trends across time. This is a deconstructed, extended, and hackable version of QueryPic.
