Dutch Ships and Sailors is a project that aims to provide an infrastructure for maritime historical datasets, linking correlating data through semantic web technology. It brings together datasets related to recruitment and shipping in the East-India trade (mainly 18th century) and in the shipping of the northern provinces of the Netherlands (mainly 19th century). For the northern provinces, the database contains data on the personnel recruited, the ships, and other variables (muster rolls of the northern provinces of the Netherlands).
Dutch Ships and Sailors is a CLARIN IV-project, hosted by Huygens ING in collaboration with VU University Amsterdam, the International Institute of Social History and Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam.
The data from this project are divided over 5 datasets. See the ‘Thematic collection: Dutch Ships and Sailors’ dataset for a full overview.
This dataset contains the conversion to Linked Data of the mustering of ships and crew composition in Asian waters, the general sea muster rolls of the Dutch East India Company (VOC, as an RDF/Turtle version. It is based on a dataset created by Dr. M. van Rossum, Generale Zeemonsterrollen VOC (GZMVOC), containing data collected from archival records. References to the Dutch Asiatic Shipping (DAS) dataset are present through numerical IDs .
