The DM Project The DM project is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Digital Humanities Implementation Grant for 2013-14 by the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant will fund our current developmental goals (listed below), help continue our work with our partner projects, and launch the Virtual Mappa project with the British Library. Overview DM is an environment for the study and annotation of images and texts. It is a suite of tools, enabling scholars to gather and organize the evidence necessary to support arguments based in digitized resources. DM enables users to mark fragments of interest in manuscripts, print materials, photographs, etc. and provide commentary on these resources and the relationships among them.

Spatial History Project The Spatial History Project at Stanford University, a part of the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), is made possible by the generous funding of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE), DoResearch, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and The Wallenberg Foundation Media Places Initiative. The Spatial History Project at Stanford University is a place for a collaborative community of students, staff, and scholars to engage in creative spatial, textual and visual analysis to further research in the humanities. We are part of the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) along with Humanities+Design and the Literary Lab on the top floor of Wallenberg Hall. We continually seek fruitful collaborations with faculty at Stanford and beyond, and hire motivated students year round. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Matt Bryant.

Much has changed since the first edition and the new guidelines have been extensively revised and expanded with new material including the addition of 29 colour figures. They are organised into four parts intended to group together information of most use for the different envisaged audiences: Standards for Geophysical SurveyGeophysical Survey and PlanningGuide to Choice of MethodsPractitioner's Guide to Good Practice
