Europeana Hackathon Winners Workshop
The winners of the Hackathon were the EuropeanaGlobe team (Anja Jentzsch, Ulrike Krabo, Elaheh Momeni, Petr Pridal and Rainer Simon) who created a beautiful map-based search interface using only open search and browser based components.
This app uses really cutting edge HTML5 and WebGL 3D-graphics in your browser so requires the latest Chrome or Firefox version to try it out.
End users select a date or defined time period from 1750 onwards to display content associated with map locations.
See http://www.europeanaglobe.eu/ to try it out.
Search Short-cuts, the query suggestion algorithm designed by CNR within the framework of the ASSETS project participated with Diego Ceccarelli (CNR) and Hugo Huurdman (Timeless Future) were awarded the second prize.
