About us
The Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis (CDDA) is the leading not for profit developer of digital educational and community electronic resources in the British Isles.

It is a centre of excellence in the creation of e resources, research on e-resource methodologies, the use of tools to better use digital content, and substantive academic research using the materials we have created.

We offer a large scale data capture service, either based in our purpose built accommodation at Queen's University Belfast or, through our mobile unit, at any site worldwide.

We have a comprehensive service from the digitisation of 'difficult' historical material, to consultation, project management, technical support, the assessment of delicate materials, quality assurance, data post processing and project delivery. We have a range of specialised equipment (including flatbed, book page, microfilm and map scanners ranging up to A0) and associated software. The experienced team has been involved in a number of collaborative projects ranging from simple digitisation work to complex post processing, innovative dissemination and outstanding research.

CDDA is a founding member of the ICT Network of Expert Centres (www.arts-humanities.net/noc) which includes leading institutions involved in the creation and use of digital content. We have received significant grant income both from the academic and commercial sectors in recent times amounting to in excess of £8,000,000 through more than 60 projects.

About the CDDA logo

The logo, created by greenlanddesign.org, is inspired by the cutting-edge, wide-ranging and international work that is carried out by the department, and is based on the physical mapping of CDDA collaboration and conference participation. Belfast, in grey, acts as a hub, with partner institutions and conference venues located on a Robinson-projected world map. Different colours represent different continental groups.
