What Does a Collection of Over 7 Million Cultural Heritage Objects Look Like? by Christian Bernhardt, Gabriel Credico and Christopher Pietsch, Marian Dörk, Stephan Bartholmei
The German Digital Library provides access to a continuously growing collection that is part of the digital cultural heritage of German cultural and academic institutions. This project attempts to make the dimensions of this stock of artefacts, documents and resources visible and tangible with the help of interactive visualisations. The resulting representations are experimental overviews of the temporal and spatial distribution of objects and the associated topics, people, and organisations.
