CLARIAH-Benelux Workshop on Geospatial and Semantic Web Technologies

Researchers and developers within the Benelux have been building up expertise on geospatial technology within deep mapping and Time Machine projects. The Geohumanities rely on fast-developing spatial technologies, semantic web technology and Linked open Data. At the same time, they explore collaborative en participatory research methods. In this first CLARIAH-Benelux meeting we bring together developers, researchers and coordinators to exchange ideas and experiences of our geospatial projects. How can we collaborate in future development and research?

The Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies will be presenting the Ghent / Bruges Time Machine and chairing a break-out session on the uses of Time Machine for comparative research.
