Revealing Cultural Collections Over Time

We present a novel timeline visualisation tool designed for visual analysis of digital cultural collections. We evaluated our prototype in use with a number of different collections, such as the digital catalogue of the art collection of the Tate and Cooper Hewitt’s object collection. Through our research, we explore the particular challenges for visualisation of digital collections data and, in close collaboration with museum professionals, identify the potential of visual analytics of cultural data in a humanities context.
