In February 2018, I joined the DH Lab KNAW team at the fourth HackaLOD challenge. This challenge involves using and connecting digital heritage datasets, including sets from the National Library of the Netherlands, the Rijksmuseum and other institutions.
During the hackathon, we developed an application based on historical recipes from historical newspapers, and linked open data, including images from Wikimedia and the Rijksmuseum. The final application combined browsing and searching facilities, as well as a summary of possible research using this dataset.
At the end of the event, the jury awarded us with the first prize of the challenge! In the near future, we are looking at followups to our work in the hackaLOD.
