Digital Methodologies Tool Page

Digital Methods aim at appropriating and repurposing the methods of digital media for research. Such research, in turn, relies on the use of digital tools for collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data. While some of these tools are complex applications that are able to handle gigabytes or terabytes of data, many digital methods tools are relatively small applications with a specific purpose and limited scope. As genuine research tools these applications are not just a means of research, but also their result. This website gives you access to digital methods tools that were developed at the media studies department in Siegen.
