Mapping Notes and Nodes

(February 2014 - October 2014)

This KNAW public-private partnership will develop methods to analyse potential meaningful relationships between artists and intellectuals by combining biographical data with relevant contextual information. A pilot study will bring together three complementary, but heterogeneous datasets: Biographical Reference Works (HI-KNAW), Ecartico (UvA) and Hadrianus (KNIR). The project will develop a viewer that visualises the co-presence of historical actors (nodes in networks) and contextual information (notes in networks) of the creative industry in Amsterdam and Rome. It supports prioritizing the research agenda for the history of the creative industry.

nodegoat

(March 2013 - present)

nodegoat is a web-based database management, analysis and visualisation platform. Using nodegoat, scholars define, create, query, update, and manage any number of data tables by use of a graphic user interface. Their custom data model autoconfigures the backbone of the research environment's core functionalities. Within nodegoat, scholars are able to instantly analyse and visualise data sets. nodegoat allows scholars to enrich data with relational, geographical and temporal attributes. Therefore, the modes of analysis are inherently diachronic and ready-to-use for interactive maps and extensive trailblazing.

Historical Network Analysis

(2012 - present)

The Dutch Spinoza Prize laureate Joep Leerssen established the Study Platform on Interlocking Nationalisms to map the historical development of national cultures in Europe. We were asked to develop a tool that could analyse the interconnectedness of intellectuals who were engaged in the construction of national cultures. To achieve this, we build a research environment that can host and analyse correspondence networks. In order to share the outcomes of this research with a wide audience, we developed a user friendly interface.

Dynamic Heritage Education

(January 2013 - September 2013)

The Center for Historical Culture at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam wanted to transfer their research on heritage education to an interactive online educational environment. We built a navigational framework that allows educational experts to construct an object driven learning environment. Pupils explore this environment intuitively and learn by discovering clues and saving their findings.
