Of nuns and monks

The fine art of data modeling – NAMPI

The aim of the project “Nuns and Monks – Prosopographical Interfaces (NAMPI)” is twofold: First, to create a flexible and fully-fledged database system to create and store detailed prosopographical data in a reliable and reusable manner. Second, to use this software to create an online database with detailed information on early modern nuns and monks and the people surrounding them and their communities.

To learn more about how this project overcomes traditional data storage and how data modeling compares to being an artist as well as which challenges had to be met and overcome, watch our interview with Daniel Jeller (Primary Investigator NAMPI and CTO of Time Machine) and visit the project website to test out the interface.
