Data for History

Das internationale Konsortium hat das Ziel, die Interoperabilität (geo-)historischer Daten zu verbessern. Zu diesem Zweck sollen gemeinsame Methoden zur Modellierung, Kuratierung und Verwaltung von Daten im Rahmen historischer Forschung entwickelt werden. Auf diese Weise steht zukünftigen Forschungsprojekten ein Framework zur kollaborativen und interoperablen Produktion, Nachnutzung und Analyse historischer Forschungsdaten zur Verfügung.
