Got a really good idea about doing a hybrid coding model using embeddings. We start with a list of “place terms” and a list of “space terms”. We then use the embedded representation (vector) of those terms to find the adjacent terms. This is a sort of automated “snowball sampling”, where terms can lead to other terms. Once we have these terms, we use them as queries into the database to find the campaign and the timestamp for each. We use these to create the trajectories and maps.

This is a pretty straightforward code and a set of queries to write, and I have high confidence that it will work, and provide a novel, understandable method of producing a nice ‘mixed method’ process that is also grounded completely in the corpora.
