Query and context based visualization of time-spatial cultural dynamics

To get started on QVIZ

The QVIZ frame work contains three major parts, the archival search that gives a way to find resources, the collaborative environment that provides a way to co-operate with people with similar interests and the social bookmarking tool that makes it possible to bookmark resources and collect them within the collaborative environment.

An account is needed in order to try out and evaluate the QVIZ framework. To apply for an account please register below and provide a good motivation as to why you want to experiment with and evaluate the QVIZ framework.

An account request must to be approved by a QVIZ partner therefore the response may take a couple of days.

As an account holder you will also be requested to provide QVIZ partners with feedback from your evaluation of the QVIZ framework.

Please note
In order to view archival resources through the archival portals you must have an individual account with the National Archives of Estonia which will enable you to use the QVIZ bookmarking resource.
A short term account to the State Archives of Sweden will be provided in the response email if the application is approved.
