Project Launch: Sandcastle

October 30, 2020

Wired! Lab core member Edward Triplett & collaborator Philip Stern have launched their new project Sandcastle with support from an NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grant as well as Bass Connections. Sandcastle aims to

enable researchers to visualize non-cartesian, premodern images of places in a comparative environment that resembles the gestural, malleable one used by medieval and early modern cartographers and artists.

The project team are using visual annotation and procedural modeling to create a workflow with existing tools that can be applied not only to their own case studies but also to future research. A major aspect of the project will be documenting and publishing the workflow for other scholars’ use. Learn more.
