Maritiem digitaal is a website concerning maritime objects and literature. In December 2015 it contained almost 850.000 objects and titles. It is a cooperative project of various maritime museums in the Netherlands: the Maritime Museum Rotterdam, the Netherlands Maritime Museum Amsterdam, the Marine Museum Den Helder, the Baggermuseum Sliedrecht, the Nationaal Reddingmuseum ‘Dorus Rijkers’, the Visserijmuseum Vlaardingen, and the Frisian Maritime Museum Sneek.
The sources are divided into various collections:
- Ship models and other models
- Paintings, drawings, and prints
- Printed work
- Technical drawings
- Instruments, tools, and technical equipment
- Arts and crafts
The items can be browsed by collection. Advanced search in the entire collection is also possible. In addition, it is possible to limit the search to just one museum collection.
Metadata are available for each record. Not all items contain a digital image. It is possible to select ‘Only show results with images.’ The images can be downloaded in JPEG format.
