#Hackathon - the #genealogy of Catharina-Amalia, Princess of Orange

Visualising the genealogy of person can be extremely interesting. The tool that was the best we had exists in Reasonator and for the Dutch Royal family it did not really work. Too many people are involved.

The approach of a new tool developed at the hackathon in Bern is really interesting. It limits itself to five generations and it shows pictures of the people. It is nice to see princess Catharina-Amalia.

It is also great to notice that you can have the same information in for instance Chinese or Russian. When you click on one of the persons in the genealogy, it will produce the genealogy for that person..

At this time the new tool is very much in development. It is great to show why hackathons are so relevant.
