The following workshop is organised at the VU by one of our member groups.

Workshop “Maps and Visualization Techniques in the eHumanities”
Kickoff Event GLAMMap
3rd of May 2013

This workshop has three aims: i) present ongoing research in the eHumanities in the Netherlands that use maps and visualization techniques, ii) meet researchers working in this interesting field and discuss possibilities together, iii) kickoff the ERC Proof of Concept GLAMMap project.
Everyone interested in maps and visualization techniques in the eHumanities is cordially invited!
The GLAMMap project will create a software to visualize large collections of books and other cultural artifacts on geographical maps. The resulting package will be a system with an integrated automatic, user-customizable metadata harvester in a fully functional visualization software prototype apt to large-scale data visualization.
On this event a new prototype will be presented!
