The digital humanities are known for embracing innovation

Humap loves digital humanities, and every project on our platform comes under that umbrella somehow.

Humap for digital humanities

Interested in using Humap for a grant-funded project? Our Bid Kit has all of the information you’ll need for a great application. We also have a video tour and a platform overview. Our full feature list is here.

We also have a participatory archaeology/interactive cartography tool called Placemaker. It’s currently being used to crowdsource archaeological data in the UK to improve existing records but has wider applications as a user-friendly map-drawing tool.
