This dataset consists of a CSV spreadsheet file and a ZIP file with a notebook to process the data and generate a dynamic visualisation created in the Observable tool by Miguel Vieira.

The data represents the technology stack of King’s Digital Lab (KDL). The spreadsheet includes a non-exhaustive list of technologies applied or considered by the KDL team in the production of digital research from its set up in 2015 to the time of data collection. For each technology, the data contains information about its developer (individual or institution), function, permission (Open-source, Proprietary), and sector (Community, For-profit company, University, Non-profit organisation). It also specifies, in the stack field, which technologies have been actively used by the lab (KDL) at the time of data collection, applied in the digital humanities legacy projects inherited from the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London or considered by the lab team at the stage of project conceptualisation and feasibility assessment.

Based on this data, a dynamic visualisation has been created using the Observable tool. You can access the Observable notebook with this link: https://observablehq.com/@jmiguelv/dhlab-kdl-technology-network.

The data was collected as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project, “Digital Humanities Laboratory: Studying the Entanglement of Infrastructure and Technology in Knowledge Production” conducted at King’s Digital Lab at King’s College London. The technology network aims to provide a resource for investigating how a digital humanities lab and scholarly research are embedded in the complex global and local technological landscape through which digital humanities institutions, the IT industry, and society are brought together.
