We’re over the moon to announce that Peripleo, our prototype data visualisation tool has won the 2016 DH Award for Best Data Visualisation. This is a great achievement, since the tool is still in an early phase of development, and all credit for this win is due to our brilliant, patient Technical Director, Rainer Simon.
We’re looking forward to some great advances in features and capabilities over the next few months. But it’s always wonderful to be recognised by our peers in the DH Community for what we’ve done so far.
We’re also really happy and proud to be associated with the other projects which were nominated, runners-up and winners in the other categories. The DH Awards are a good barometer of the progress in Digital Humanities projects every year, and it’s great to see the diversity and range of work being done. Congratulations to our fellow competitors. And thanks to everyone who cast their ballots. We’re really glad you like Peripleo, and we won’t be resting on our laurels (sorry, couldn’t resist…). We’re excited to share the new version with you when it’s ready later in 2017.
