Proudly supporting research excellence and interdisciplinary collaboration

At its core, the DECIMA Project is about fostering collaboration. With the help of a growing local and international network of scholars, institutions, and students, we continue to break new ground in the rapidly advancing field of geo-spatially enhanced social history. We have exchanged data and analytics with historians and scholars in many different disciplines, and invite new scholars to work with us to build mutually productive forms of partnership and collaboration.
