Verrijkt Koninkrijk kick-off

On 16-2-2012, the kick-off meeting for the new CLARIN-NL project Verrijkt Koninkrijk was held at the NIOD offices in the center of Amsterdam. In this project, the partners (NIOD, UVA, VUA, and Meertens Institute) will enrich the 30 digitized volumes of Dr. Loe de Jong’s tour de force ‘Het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden in de Tweede Wereldoorlog’. The project will develop a demonstrator showcasing the increased access for historical researchers as well as the general public.
The VUA will convert the OCR’ed back-of-the-book index as well as any produced Named Entity Recognition results to a structured vocabulary, which will be mapped to the enriched NIOD in-house thesaurus. The vocabularies will also be mapped to external Linked Data sources. We will identify historical science use cases that can be supported using this increased semantic access to the source data.
The project officially started on February 2012 and will run until January 2013.
