Comment publier les données des musées dans le Linked #OpenData ? | #DH

Comment publier les données des musées dans le Linked #OpenData ? | #DH | Public Datasets - Open Data - |

Cet article décrit le processus de publication des données de l'ensemble de la collection du Smithsonian American Art Museum  (SAAM), soit 41000 objets et 8000 artistes, dans le web des données liées et ouvertes.

luiy's insight:

Modéliser, Lier, Vérifier :


Les musées, à travers le monde, ont construit des bases de données avec des méta-données sur des millions d’objets, leur histoire, les personnes qui les ont créés et les entités qui les représentent, mais ces données sont stockées dans des bases de données propriétaires et ne sont pas immédiatement utilisables. Récemment, les musées ont adopté le web sémantique dans l'intention de rendre ces données accessibles.


Parmi les projets notables du Linked Open Data, on peut citer The Europeana project qui a publié les données de 1500 musées, librairies et archives en Europe, le musée d'Amsterdam qui a publié les données de 73000 objets et le LODAC museum qui a publié les données de 114 musées au Japon.


Mais l’expérience a montré que publier les données des musées dans le web des données liées et ouvertes était difficile : les bases de données sont larges et complexes, l’information est très variée d’un musée à l’autre et il s’avère difficile de les relier à d’autres jeux de données.

DiRT Directory : digital research #tools | #openaccess #dh

DiRT Directory : digital research #tools | #openaccess #dh | Public Datasets - Open Data - |
luiy's insight:

The DiRT Directory is a registry of digital research tools for scholarly use. DiRT makes it easy for digital humanists and others conducting digital research to find and compare resources ranging from content management systems to music OCR, statistical analysis packages to mindmapping software.

QLET's curator insight, August 21, 2014 11:32 AM

Great index of digital research tools for the curious contemporary researcher.

Making sense of #BigData : mining Twitter names I #dataviz #dh | Public Datasets - Open Data - |

Millions of geo tweets in various languages, discussing anything from 'hey, I'm here' to finance, geopolitics or marketing. How do you make sense of them?

luiy's insight:

Our name recognition software can predict, given a person name : its cultural and linguistic classification, country of origin, gender and spelling variants.


Our onomastics blog presents a few examples of data visualizations, prepared using NamSor™ Onomastics software (NomTri™).

We’ve used name recognition (applied onomastics) to filter information and produce unique maps of the e-Diasporas. Where are the digitally connected Italian, Turkish and Russian today? They may be migrants, tourists, business travellers, student, visiting scientists…

The Digital Ecologies Research Partnership (DERP) is a joint initiative to promote academic inquiry into social dynamics of the web.
luiy's insight:

Launched in 2014, the Digital Ecologies Research Partnership (DERP) is a joint initiative by an alliance of community websites to promote open, publicly accessible, and ethical academic inquiry into the vibrant social dynamics of the web.


DERP seeks to solve two problems in the academic research space:


First, it is difficult for academic researchers to easily obtain data for their work beyond the confines of the largest social media platforms. DERP is a single point of contact for researchers to get in touch with relevant team members across a range of different community sites. We envision that this will lower the friction to investigating these sites in more depth, and broaden the scope of research happening within the academic community.


Second, it remains difficult to conduct good cross-platform analyses in academic research. By bringing a number community of sites together under a single cooperative effort, we intend to lower the friction of doing so, as well as better enable the sites themselves to coordinate with one another on supporting researchers.


DERP focuses on providing public data to academic researchers while facilitating an active online research community of Fellows. DERP will only support research that respects user privacy, responsibly uses data, and meets IRB approval. All research supported by DERP will be released openly and made publicly available. Partner platforms may also have additional guidelines and privacy commitments that apply to the research they support.

#DigitalHumanities Series - #Open Book Publishers

#DigitalHumanities Series - #Open Book Publishers | Public Datasets - Open Data - |

Via Pierre Levy
luiy's insight:

The series is overseen by an international board of experts and its books subjected to rigorous peer review. Its objective is to encourage works that extend the boundaries of the field and help to strengthen its interrelations with the other disciplines of the arts, humanities and beyond. We are interested in experimental monographs, edited volumes and collections as well as introductory guides for non-specialists, best practices guides for practitioners and "state of the art" surveys. The Series offers digital humanists a dedicated venue for high-quality, Open Access publication.


Proposals in any area of the Digital Humanities are invited. Please see our Information for Authors page for instructions on how to submit a proposal to us.
