DH Awards is an annual international initiative whose scientific committee selects, upon notification by the community of scholars and practitioners in the Digital Humanities, a series of projects and initiatives that combine the digital with the humanities. The projects nominated in various categories are then awarded based on the votes cast by the community.
The Story Map Building and Visualising Tool (SMBVT) is a semi-automatic tool to construct narratives and visualize them as story maps. It won the DH Awards in the “Best DH Tool or Suite of Tools” category. The tool was developed using Semantic Web technologies by the Digital Humanities of AIMH laboratory group at ISTI-CNR. At the design and development of the tool collaborated Valentina Bartalesi, Emanuele Lenzi, and Nicolò Pratelli.
