About A user-centric design for the BiographyNet Linked Data interface

Description

The BiographyNet data concerns 75.000 Dutch people mentioned in various database. Within the BiographyNet project, we are converting this data to a semantic knowledge base and will create a web demonstrator.

The lead questions for the design of a semantic demonstrator are: Which relations can we reveal between people and events, geographical movements and networks between people? What do they tell historians about the formation of Dutch society and the ‘boundaries of the Netherlands’?

In this M.Sc. project, you will do a user-study with future users of the demonstrator (ie. Dutch historians). Based on this study, you will design a User Interface and develop a (wireframe) prototype to be evaluated. Based on the skills and wishes of the student, this project can focus more on the user study, the design or the implementation part.
