On April 8th was the Day of DH! – The occasion on which the world wide DH community makes a snapshot of its members acitivities during the day.
Where were the members of the CLiGS group? What did they do on that day?
As you can see on the map, we spent the day in different places: José Calvo and Daniel Schlör were in Würzburg, Ulrike Henny in Cologne and Christof Schöch was blogging from Kraków.
To get to know what we actually did on that day, check out the blog posts on the Day of DH 2016 website:
- Christof Schöch about his stay in Kraków
- José Calvo on the work on his corpus of Spanish novels and the collection of metadata
- Ulrike Henny about OCRing Spanish American texts and testing HeidelTime, a temporal tagger
Our overall impression was that people were very busy on that day (188 members representing the international DH community, some non-active members, some bustling Good-Morning-posts). We hope that the interest in the Day of DH event will continue and hopefully grow in the future!
