The Final Activity Report summarises the QVIZ project and emphasises the correlation between initial objectives and the final result – the integrated QVIZ platform. The platform currently provides access to 75,646 archival volumes, containing between 16 and 18 million digital images in two national archives through an innovative time-spatial and collaborative environment. The environment integrates a map and time based query interface for gaining access to archival resources with a collaborative environment which makes it possible for users to add and share references and to do collaborative knowledge building with other users. The use of an administrative ontology, which currently identifies 71,040 units linked by 216,289 relationships, and a time-spatial approach make archival material significantly more accessible, and this approach enables cross-national and cross-institutional access to archival resources. The outline of the Final Activity Report is as follows: First a brief overview is given with information about the consortium and deliverables and milestones. Thereafter the objectives for the project are described and matched with the results (general and operational) from the project as well as with state of the art. The third part of the Final Activity Report provides an overview of the different work packages, describing the work carried out and how it relates to the objectives of each work package.
