Research cases

  • The plot as an atom of space

    "Geographical information is a fundamental part of humanities data." Speaking is Thomas Vermaut, developer and team leader of the geographical analysis expertise group which works on processing spatial data with digital infrastructure.

  • Does the HuC need to build national infrastructure?

    Menno Rasch has now been director of the KNAW Humanities Cluster’s Digital Infrastructure department for a while. He is convinced that his IT staff can have a major impact on research. But then successful collaboration within HuC must take shape outside the KNAW as well. Together we can always achieve more.
