ABSTRACT
TextGrid is a new Grid project in the framework of the German D-Grid initiative, with the aim to deploy Grid technologies for humanities scholars working on historical (German) texts. Its two roots, humanities computing and eScience (Grid computing used by research together with modern communication technologies), are the basis for TextGrid to provide pioneer work in eHumanities. After summarizing Humanities Computing and modern network technologies, community expectations in the fields of philological edition and other application areas are set forth, from which functional requirements such as modularity, distribution, etc. are distilled. The first version of the TextGrid architecture was designed in accordance with these requirements, and focuses on openness by standard conformance and encapsulation. It provides storage Grid services via a pure Web Services interface to dedicated Web Services tools for different aspects of text processing, analysis and retrieval. This platform aims to provide easily usable tools for scholars, but also specifies interfaces for external program developers to add functionality.
