Résumé – DIVADesk: A Holistic Digital Workspace for Analyzing Historical Document Images
We present the concept of DIVADesk — a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) for scholarly work on historical documents inspired by the shift toward working with digital facsimiles. A short review of existing tools and projects shows that a holistic workspace integrating the latest outcomes of computational Document Image Analysis (DIA) research is still a desideratum that can only be achieved by intensive interdisciplinary collaboration. Our proposed underlying modular architecture of the digital workspace is presented. It consists of a set of services that can be combined according to individual scholars’ requirements. The proposed DIVADesk addresses specific research with historical documents, as this is one of the hardest cases in computational DIA. The outcomes of this paradigmatic research can be transferred to other use cases in the humanities. Finally, existing services and the ongoing HisDoc 2.0 projects are presented. The conception and realization of DIVADesk promises research outcomes both in computer science and in the humanities. Therefore, an interdisciplinary approach and intensive collaboration between scholars in the two research fields are of crucial importance.
