Witchfinder General Internship
Since 2019, each summer a Data Visualisation Intern has worked with Ewan McAndrew our Wikimedian in Residence on an ongoing project of investigating and visualising the geographical data from the Scottish Witchcraft Database. Within the project and wider community this role has been referred to as our Witchfinder General.
Over the last five years these interns have created excellent visualisations which have been added to the project website making it into a great educational resource that everyone can access. These visualisations have been based on the Survey of Scottish Witchcraft Database created by academics in the early 2000’s.
The project has a blog in which each of the Data Visualisation Interns have written about their experience, processes, and output at the conclusion of their internships.
All of the video media created across the internships has also been gathered together in an excellent media collection over on Media Hopper Create.
This series of resources were created by the Data Visualisation Interns at University of Edinburgh and are available under a range of Creative Commons licences.
