Svg display with codes and lines for Tablet E (“Keiti”) has been added as well. See the previous entry for the link.

For T:

It seems I keep putting up more versions of the same thing. But here now finally are pages which use the svg images to display the tablets together with their codes. So far Items A, B, and D for both Barthel and Fischer tracings have been completed.

On these pages, the glyphs are individualized and clickable. Hovering over a glyph will hilite it in cyan. Lines are displayed to show glyph subdivisions, except in the case of stacked glyphs. So far the codes are still the original codes of Barthel/CEIPP. Missing codes are indicated with “_”.

However it should be noted that the “traditional” order of glyphs has been changed. As has long been known, stacked glyphs should be read bottom to top. Nevertheless the numbering given by Barthel (and CEIPP) has always given the codes top_glyph:bottom_glyph. For example the third glyph group on Tahua, side a, line 2 was written as 103a:095bjt. This has now been changed. If the codes are selected and copied, it will be noted that the order has been reversed. This will become more apparent as further interfaces are put up.

Better organization of the welter of pages now on this site still awaits.

I am now posting another example of the kind of thing that svgs make possible. Here is a single page comparison of the drawings by Fischer and Barthel for Item A. Note that in this case the scale of the Fischer images has been adjusted to match the scale and spacing of the Barthel glyphs. As a result the glyphs match up perfectly, making comparison much easier.
It should be noted however, that, due to the simple algorithm used for scaling, stacked and linked glyph combinations may appear to be “broken.” Conversely some glyphs, which Fischer draws separately will appear to touch.

For G:

For L:

In this case the line is curved. The scanned version shows as is. For the svg the line has been straightened. This was achieved by isolating the glyphs and rotating them individually, and then placing them so as to preserve the distance between glyphs.

Things are finally moving in a productive—rather than merely “reproductive”— direction. I am now posting a sample of the kind of thing that the svg graphics will make possible. Here a link to a sample page that compares all the instances of Glyph 700 on Tablet A. Unlike the earlier page that allowed such display, this one shows both Barthel and Fischer variants of the glyph (including the extra instance of Glyph 700 that Fischer draws at the end of line Ab4). Another important advantage of the svgs is that they allow for cleaner separation of the glyphs, including stacked glyphs, or glyphs that overlap, which the prior method did not allow for.
