Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity
The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (MPI MMG) develops new digital tools and methods for anthropological research which cover three main areas:
The application of qualitative data analysis methods to visual material is still a new field although collecting visual material during field work has become common. In the project a computer-assisted method for analysing field material will be developed.
Another aim is to support researchers in their fieldwork with digital tools like digital maps with their geo-referenced photos and analysis and visualization tools.
An infrastructure for the management of digital research data will be designed. This shall be a step to build an institutional collection of digital anthropological research data.
