  • 1. o What you have do to • Form groups and choose or invent a project (Deadline 13.11) • Use Framapad for this, put your name under the project you are interested in. • Create an independent blog (NOT dh101.ch) for your project including (Deadline 11.12, 30 % of your final grade). • The definition of the project objectives and deliverables (100 words) • A methodology section (How you will approach the digitization, modelisation and presentation of your data) (750 words) • A project plan with milestones • Present the project orally in group on 11.12 or 18.12 (7 minutes presentations + 3 minutes questions, 20 % of your final grade) Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 11
  • 2. o You can invent your own projects Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 48

  • 4. o Dominio da Mar (T1) Timeline of Dominio da Mar (cities, fortresses, colonies) The objective is to synthetize chronogically the Venetians settlements overseas. You will have to separate the direct administration and the places indirectly supervised by Venice. Territories will appear and disappear over the centuries. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 13
  • 5. o Dominio da Terra Ferma (T2) Timeline of Dominio da Terra Ferma. The goal is to see that Venice was also powerful on the ground and locked the key sites for exchanges and money : rivers, cities, roads. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 14
  • 6. o Political structure (T3) An evolution of the political and administrative structure. The political and administrative structure of Venice is special. It’s a complex game of control and retro-control. The objective here is to visualize and to understand over the years, how this system has been built and what are the events at the origin of their creation. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 15
  • 7. o Venetian cartography (T4) History of Venetian Mapping from Middle-Age to late Republic : from Fra Mauro to Albrizzi Understand the complex issues involved with mapping and geographical representations in di↵erent times. Following the work of prominent Venetian cartographers via prominent examples available online, visually highlight the evolution of such craft. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 16
  • 8. o 3D and procedural modeling (MP) Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 17

  • 13. o Facades of Venice (MP5) A complete model of all the facade of Venice. The goal of this project is to create a database of all the facades of all the buildings of Venice. The starting point will be some existing 3D models like one of Google Earth from which could be extracted low quality pictures. The challenge will be to improve these pictures to create higher resolutions models. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 22

  • 16. o Ornaments in print (D2) Matching techniques. Ornaments in print o↵er a unique signature to identify the origin of a printed documents. The goal of the project is to extract from a database of document ornaments presented on each page and to design a classifier permitting to attribute a given set of ornaments to a given venetian printer. The tool could be used to map the di↵usion of venetian prints Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 5 | 2013 25
  • 17. o Citations of the archive (D3) Text mining. The goal of this project is to identify which sections or documents of the Archivio di Stato are most often used by scholars.
