Many tools and examples that are of interest to those wishing to explore, experiment, and develop projects for digital humanities or data analysis and other tasks are based on a Linux operating system. Mac iOS laptops support Linux fairly easily. However, until recently, Windows OS users have had difficulty in accessing programs and techniques that require a Linux operating system. This short tutorial will demonstrate a simple way for most Windows 10 users to run Linux programs and systems through Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
Sometimes it can be useful to take information from a website, such as document lists from archives, for future reference. This short resource will show the user how to download an extension to copy tables from websites and then import the table into a spreadsheet program.
OpenCV is a very popular, free and open source software system used for a large variety of computer vision applications. This article is intended to help you get started in experimenting with OpenCV using an example of face detection in images as a case study.
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.
Topic modelling is a technique by which documents within a corpus are clustered based on how certain groups of terms are used together within the text. The commonalities between such term groupings tend to form what we would normally call “topics”, providing a way to automatically categorise documents by their structural content, rather than a more metadata-based knowledge system. Using resources held with EHRI's collections, this notebook offers learners an introduction to 'LDA' topic modelling using Python in a step-by-step guide.
The need to reference webpages in academic work is growing all the time, particularly in the digital humanities. There are many different reference management systems that exist to help researchers sort and find their sources and the most accessible of these is Zotero.
This blog examines TEITOK, which is a corpus framework used as an alternative to Omeka. TEITOK is centered around texts and is similar to the Omeka interface – both allow you to search through the documents, and display the transcription. The main difference is that Omeka treats the transcription as an object description, whereas TEITOK not only shows that a word appears in a document, but also where it appears and how it is used.
This event, organised and provided by the CLS INFRA project, offers an introductory course to textual data annotation. The workshop introduces learners to how to edit, annotate, and query a text corpus without a single line of code, how to structure texts with the XML-TEI, and how to run an NLP tool to add linguistic information.
This video tutorial provides a step-by-step guide through the DARIAH-DE Publikator, a tool that enables its users to upload data(-sets) into the DARIAH-DE Repository and index them with metadata. The tool is part of the larger DARIAH-DE Data Federation Architecture, aiming to support the FAIRification of research data with regards to the research data life cycle.
As part of the DARIAH Friday Frontiers in-house webinar series, Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra and Laure Barbot provide an introduction to EOSC and open science projects for researchers and practitioners working in the Arts and Humanities. They include a brief walk through the EOSC landscape, and how different EOSC projects are working towards ensuring open science for all.
Polifonia is a H2020 project that aims at harmonising diverse information sources in the landscape of musical heritage and scholarship. The challenges are many, from data management, to knowledge organisation and dissemination barriers. In this talk, an ontology driven strategy to organise, share, and interact with the wealth of music data on the web, is presented. This include solutions to engage with scholars and lay persons, with an emphasis on data visualisation and storytelling.
