The stan­dar­di­zed pic­to­ral type­face was ori­gi­nally deve­lo­ped for the data ana­ly­sis and visual com­mu­ni­ca­tion of archaeo­lo­gi­cal finds and fin­dings. Rea­li­zing the poten­tial of the type­face, we deve­lo­ped over 400 more picto­grams for other domains.

The con­cept of Diglû is ori­gi­nally the result of a practice-based research pro­ject. The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) project was deve­lo­ped in colla­bo­ra­tion with the University of Bern, Near Eastern Archaeology and the University of the Arts Bern in the research area Knowledge Visualization.

Diglû ena­bles archaeo­lo­gists to visua­lize data and to augment charts, maps and text easily by inte­gra­ting icons. The picto­gram font repla­ces abstract num­bers or let­ters of geo­me­tric forms by vivid ima­ges. Diglû helps archaeo­lo­gists to commu­ni­cate more accu­ra­tely through a fas­ter know­ledge trans­fer and a bet­ter com­pre­hen­sion of com­plex topics.
