Toolkit research Dutch architectural heritage in Indonesia

In Digging4Data a step-by-step plan is offered to researchers. Digging4Data is the result of intensive cooperation between Dutch and Indonesian institutions: the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, the National Archive of the Netherlands, Pusat Dokumentasi Arsitektur and Heritage Hands On. Digging4Data was developed following the workshop 'Collecting and Connecting: Historical Data for Inner City Development' organized at the end of 2014. After the workshop there was a lot of enthusiasm for researching monumental heritage while not always having the knowledge. Digging4Data publication offers an accessible toolkit that stages the guidelines for a thorough research step by step. Some case studies are also highlighted.
