Workshop Nodegoat

Location Huygens ING
Start/end 09:00 - 17:00 h

Thinking about building a dataset for your historical research? And aspiring to explore, analyse and visualise your data through networks, time and space?

Nodegoat is an online, free and accessible object-oriented database tool that allows for researchers to build their own data model and filter and visualise their data in numerous ways. On January 16 2020, developers Pim van Bree and Geert Kessels (LAB1100) will conduct a workshop for those interested in working with Nodegoat.

The Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands (Huygens ING) in Amsterdam will be hosting this workshop, which is free of charge. There is a maximum number of 20 participants.
