English abstract:
This project focuses on the development of a new and interactive way to illustrate historical data in an interactive manner. The main challenge is the design and development of a suitable navigation interface to allow for the definition of temporal-geospacial information as well as the visualisation and interaction with such data. Use cases can be found in various fields of application - from history lessons in secondary school (e.g. expansion of the Habsburg empire) to multimedia extensions of exhibitions and museums (e.g. urban development of Vienna from the Middle Ages to the 21st century). Using a suitable approach, such a system could also be used to enrich plain geographical data with all kinds of metadata and data from other sources.

The goal of this project is to develop a web-based platform based on user generated content platforms like Wikipedia or OpenStreetMap, where users can not only retrieve information but also provide input.
