This workshop, focussing on "Spatial data medieval to modern", is the first of a series of workshops from the NOS-HS project "Linking, Building, and Sustaining Humanities Digital Spatial Infrastructures for Research in the Nordic Countries". The main aims of this workshop were to define key concepts (spatial infrastructures, Linked Open Data, metadata, ontology), outline major challenges in the field, and to provide an opportunity to share experiences of addressing the issues in individual and national projects across the Nordic countries.
Data visualisation looks at the different technologies and tools that a researcher can use to visualise their data and enhance the communication of their findings
- In this webinar from Friday Frontiers, Dario Rodighiero (University of Groningen) discusses visualisation and representation of scholarly knowledge. This presentation brings science mapping back to its original meaning by widening its context to arts and humanities with the help of design.
- In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Miriah Meyer reflects on the question "why work with humanists as a computer scientist". She expands on how interdisciplinary collaborations with poetry scholars have shaped her own research thinking.
- In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Björn Ommer discusses Visual Analytics's concern of how to teach machines to enable visuals to speak for themselves. Pointing out the current inadequacy of research tools in the humanities, Ommer discusses questions such as "How would research in the humanities benefit if computers could handle images just as competently as they presently process text?"
- In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Jan Willem Tulp gives an overview of data visualisation as a type of data representation. Additionally, he discusses types of visualisation such as impression or experience as well as case studies, such as the European Space Agency or Tulp's project on 2012 national elections in the Netherlands.
- In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Keith Baker addresses the Digital Humanities dimensions of two projects ('Writing Rights' and 'Revolutionizing Revolution') against the academic background at Stanford. This lecture gives special attention to exploring the possibilities of digital archives as well as visualisation in the field of history.
- The training session is dedicated to Visual Data Discovery in the Social Sciences and Humanities and shows how the GoTriple platform will support exploring research topics with visual search. The added value of knowledge maps and streamgraphs for research discovery are also examined.
- This course is designed to develop your knowledge of the theory and practice of digitising material culture by producing computer generated and printed 3D models.
- This video features Geoffrey Rockwell, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities Computing at the University of Alberta, Canada and Stéfan Sinclair, Associate Professor of Digital Humanities at McGill University. Their discussion involves text visualisation within Digital Humanities, thus emphasising, that visualisation is not the end product, but an intellectual process of thinking and interpreting text.
