Abstract: In this article we discuss common approaches to using data visualizations within the field of digital humanities. We argue that by assigning equal importance to the development, as well as the usage of a visualization framework, researchers can question dogmatic “best-practice” norms for data visualizations which may prevent them from developing visualizations that can be used to find emergent phenomena within the underlying data. We then focus on the question, how visualizations re-constitute language by using diagrammatic operations. Also of big importance working with digital visualizations is the technological background influencing the tools built with and the effect on the interpretation of the data. As an example approach, we present our visualization framework called “geocollocations” which can be used as an interactive tool to detect words that typically collocate with toponyms based on the data of various text corpora.
