Massive and Rich Data for Humanities

This action (WP3) aspires to re-dimension research in the humanities fields, from small isolated corpora of rich data to a large interconnected corpus of rich data. It will cover scientific problems ranging from the massive production of rich data, to operating, querying and visualizing  voluminous data, through perennial preservation of the data and metadata, thus questioning methodology in humanity research.
