The HCRC Map Task Corpus Annotations Version 2.1
The annotations, which include orthographic transcription updated from the version on the original CD-ROMs, come all together in one zip file. The signals are too large to package in this way.
The original route giver and follower maps are available as a gzipped tar file for small format maps in GIF format, and as a zip archive for higher resolution maps in postscript format.
Completed route follower maps were photocopied 8 to an A4 page, then those A4 pages were scanned to PDF. This has resulted in a loss of resolution. However you can get these maps either individually by browsing the directory in which they reside, or in a combined zip file. Individual files are named descriptively and within each file, the 4 maps drawn with no eye contact between participants always appear on the left of the page with the eye-contact condition on the right. The order of maps within each half-page is consistent.
We have made the maps available from here for convenience; they are useful for human analysts, but the NITE XML Toolkit doesn't do anything with them.
We are sometimes asked for text transcripts of Maptask dialogues. These are simply derived using NXT on the annotations above, but we include them here for completeness: the directory in which they reside, or in a combined zip file
This readme file explains some omissions and irregularities in the citation word list audio recordings that are available.
