Heurist Knowledge Management System

Posted by Ian Johnson on March 7, 2017

It is aimed at a broad range of Humanities data, characterised by rich text, multimedia, relationships, categorisation, uncertain data, spatial and temporal information, and the need to work collaboratively while maintaining access control.

Digital Zombies

Posted by juliette Levy on August 13, 2015
