The growth of digital culture has presented researchers with what may be seen as both a challenge and an opportunity: how to visualize these cultural resources in an effective and engaging way. From 2014-2017, the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam in Germany conducted the cross-disciplinary research project Visualizing Cultural Collections (VIKUS, or Visualisierung kultureller Sammlungen) to address this very question. This website is the result of that project. Here, visitors will find six examples of different graphical user interfaces with descriptions and links to interactive demos, as well as images and descriptions of 18 student projects from the course associated with Visualizing Cultural Collections. The diversity of subject matter and visual style presented in these examples makes this resource appealing to a broad range of disciplines and interests, and non-academics may also find it interesting as well. It should be noted that while this website is in English, a few of the demos linked to it are only available in German.
