Digital Map Workshop "Altes Reich": Reshaping and Visualising Historical Spaces (DigiKAR)
Maps depicting historic regions of the Holy Roman Empire are usually based on clearly defined borders and do not sufficiently address territorial interconnections and fragmentation. This collaborative project involving historical research, information science and cartography therefore develops new concepts of data collection, data modelling and linked data to experimentally visualise fluid borders. Especially the investigation of the mobility of actors and objects opens up new perspectives on early modern territoriality. The interdisciplinary project contributes to the digital humanities and makes processed data, sample visualisations, workflow documentation and tutorials accessible to researchers, memory institutions and the general public.
