Historic online archive of the Port Authority of Valencia
In 2018, a project was undertaken to digitalize, describe and index the historical resources of the archive, administrative files dated between 1850 and 1940 approximately, and all annual reports back as far as 1861, in order to make them available to the public by publishing them online.
In 2019 the task of publishing the documents online was undertaken. Before doing so, they were subject to a number of artificial intelligence processes, allowing for information to be extracted from the digitalized images to improve document recovery and search features.
The result was the creation of a database comprised of some 10,000 documents (100,000 digitalized pages) grouped into some 900 files and reports, accessible online from the website and which can be accessed here.
