One task that DH projects face again and again is to visualise information on maps. Spatial networks of relationships become visible, proximity becomes tangible like the horizon that authors had with correspondences. Social phenomena, such as the composition of the population in different neighbourhoods, can be recorded. FactGrid information can be georeferenced at any time. We offer georeferencing in a first project - Paris to Download - for arbitrary use on the platform or in other software environments. Some views of the projects and the software, which is calling for new modules here.

About the event series

The University of Erfurt invited us to organise an online coffee-talk series on FactGrid as a collaborative research platform in the coming summer semester. We have selected nine main topics. The events are meant to be short and made for the lunch break to take a peek. Get inspired. We offer a 15-minute exploration with an open Q&A session in each case.
