Mapping Urban History in the Digital Age

Mapping Urban History in the Digital Age
Interdisciplinary workshop on digital urban history organised by the C²DH.

This interdisciplinary workshop will explore the impact of the digital turn on Urban history. A group of local and International researchers, museum professionals and entrepreneurs will present a variety of projects and discuss how digital technologies can be used to display, reconstruct, and explore the city and its layers.

The sessions will investigate the complexities of developing interactive historic maps, reflecting on visualisation and modelling strategies, and on the collection and interpretation of data coming from a variety of sources. Additional emphasis will be given to the use of digital technologies in virtual reconstructions of historical buildings, in the recreation of immersive exploratory experiences and on the use of transmedia storytelling to tell the story of a city.
