Highbrow applies the design principles of genome browsers to textual analysis and annotations. It shows, at a high level, which regions of a text are densely annotated and then supports zooming in to inspect annotations in detail. Initial applications were for the study of heavily annotated texts with standardized coordinate systems, such as the Bible, the Koran, or the works of Plato, but it can also be used to support student annotations of texts in a classroom setting and similar interactive cases.
