Reproduce the content of a source

In order to reproduce the content of a source, Geovistory asks you to reproduce the part of the structure of this source. For example, if your source is a "book", then the content you want to reproduce might be the transcribed excerpt of a chapter.

In other words, in order to add a transcription and connect it with the "book" (which you need to have added to your Geovistory library), you might want to display as well the relevant partof chapters and pages in your book.

In Geovistory, we call this different types of structural elements, such as chapter, pages, folios etc. "sections".


This clip below shows you how you can add sections, change their order & ranking, remame and delete them.
