CMIF Preview

Preview for your CMIF file

The online CMIF Preview service allows data providers to preview their CMIF file in a preliminary view. The appearance is based on the search result of correspSearch. Two diagrams provide information about different aspects of the correspondence metadata: Coverage with URIs from authority files, exact and estimated dates, and temporal distribution of the letters. In addition, the metadata of the CMIF itself (publisher, license, etc.) is displayed.

Please note: The view is generated at runtime via XSLT from the CMIF file, no data is stored in correspSearch.

The CMIF file can be uploaded to CMIF Preview or passed via URL:




This visual check complements the automated check with CMIF Check.
