Description : The Visibase corpus is the outcome of a NWO Investment Grant (1996-2001), which aimed to digitize and describe all sign language video material that was present in the late 1990s at the sign language research groups at the University of Amsterdam and at Leiden University. In the course of the project, all analogue video tapes were copied to professional digital video tapes (DVCAM).
Metadata descriptions were created for all (Leiden) and part (Amsterdam) of the data; these will be published under this corpus node in the future. Since the research group in Leiden moved to Nijmegen, the 'Nijmegen' node covers all material collected in Leiden, plus new data collected since the end of the project.
