Spatial History Project

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.

Locating London's past: a geo-referencing tool for mapping historical and archaeological evidence, 1660-1800 Locating London´s Past has created an intuitive GIS interface that enables researchers to map and visualize textual and artefactual data relating to seventeenth and eighteenth-century London against a fully rasterised version of John Rocque´s 1746 map of London and the first accurate modern OS map (1869-80). More than this, it makes these data and maps available within a Google Maps container, allowing for the analysis of the data with open source visualization tools. The interface is readily expandable to include additional data sets and maps (both modern and historic). Conocimiento Abierto Fundación Blog CKAN is a powerful, open source, open data management platform, used by governments and organizations around the world to make large collections of data accessible, including the UK and US government open data portals. Today we are very happy and excited to announce the final release of CKAN 2.0. This is the most significant piece of CKAN news since the project began, and represents months of hectic work by the team and other contributors since before the release of version 1.8 last October, and of the 2.0 beta in February. Thank you to the many CKAN users for your patience – we think you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.

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.

Bulletin It seems that every year is an important year for CERN, and this year is no exception. The LHC’s first long shutdown (LS1) is, of course, the focus of activities, but 2013 is also an opportunity for us to showcase our facilities to the public, to the media, to decision makers and to our neighbours. I’m aware that the number of visitors coming to CERN is already breaking records, and I’d like to thank everyone for the efforts you are making to accommodate them while the LS1 work is going on. >>

This project will develop the software tools, skills, and knowledge base to allow humanities researchers to use visualization - specifically on high-resolution displays powered by supercomputers – to perform novel research. Overview The tools that are currently available for visualization on high-resolution displays are primarily targeted at scientists, and because of that, the tools can be complicated and ill suited to the needs of humanities scholars. To address this issue, we have chosen a programming language called Processing as a platform on which to build visualizations and visualization tools in collaboration with humanities scholars.
