Grant Arie van Steensel for "Historisch Leiden in Kaart"
Arie van Steensel and Roos van Oosten (Leiden University) received a grant (€10.000) from DANS for a Small Data Project. The grant will be used to further develop a digital historical map of the town of Leiden, for which they were awarded an AlfaMeerwaarde-grant by NWO last year. The online application ‘Historisch Leiden in kaart’ will offer a digital infrastructure, which can be used by scholars and others to map historical data on various geo-referenced maps. Various tools to analyse, link and store historical data and maps will also be developed. HISGIS (Leeuwarden) and Erfgoed Leiden en Omstreken are partners in this project.
