Time Capsule Launch Event

14.00-16.00, 20 April 2017, Utrecht

Big cultural heritage data present an unprecedented opportunity for historical research. However, information without context is of little use for historians. For this reason, the Time Capsule project set out to address the challenges related to semantically interconnecting a variety of dispersed multi-disciplinary data sources.

Additionally, the Time Capsule project has developed a research platform that allows both historians, as well as a wider audience of expert and non-expert users to explore this complex interrelated data, by highlighting their temporal, geographical and informational context.
