Project Omega carried out by the Amsterdam City Archives has facilitated the digitisation of 210 government archives and 719 private archives over the last 5 years. Symposium Omega held on the 25th of May involved discussions on the approach, results and future of the project followed by presentations of projects that were made possible by these digitisation efforts. CREATE Data Engineer Leon van Wissen presented on how the Amsterdam Time Machine and Golden Agents projects utilise these digitised materials.
