1. The Scholars' Lab/NEH Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship was held at the University of Virginia Library May 25-27, 2010 and concluded with a set of two-minute, three-slide lightning talks by Institute attendees on their own spatial humanities projects and works-in-progress.

  2. History House, 20th May 2013

    Mapping and spatial information have always had an important role in archaeology. This is especially true of historical archaeology where maps and topographical images form a significant part of the documentary record. Drawing on a wide variety of examples from Sydney, Andrew illustrates a range of approaches to the use and analysis of historical maps and spatial data as well as examining some of the traps that await those who use them uncritically. He also explores ways of visualising and presenting maps and historical data in the digital realm.

    Andrew Wilson is an historical archaeologist who coordinates GIS projects and data development in Arts eResearch at the University of Sydney. He also teaches undergraduate computer application courses and training workshops for students, humanities scholars and professional archaeologists.

  3. As part of the research project "IBR - Inschriften im Bezugssystem des Raumes" (Inscriptions in their Spatial Context), the i3mainz, Dept. of Geoinformatics and Surveying at the Univ. of Applied Sciences in Mainz, conducted a TLS lasercan of both the interior and the exterior of the church Liebfrauenkirche in Oberwesel, Rhineland-Palatine, Germany. The main goal of IBR is to enhance humanities research in the context of the emerging field of the so-called "Spatial Humanities" with geoinformatic methods. To this aim, IBR develops a software tool that allows to draw connections between scientific textual repositories describing artefacts and geometric data like this lasercan representation.

  5. On this tutorial I try to explain how GRASS GIS data is structured. A basic knowledge of coordinate systems, map projections, and geological boundaries will be needed to be able to grasp these tutorials.

    Understanding GRASS GIS Data Structure -- LOCATIONs and MAPSETs

    LOCATIONs and MAPSETs

    1. GRASS GIS data is organized into projects. These projects are stored in the Project location. Each project consists of a coordinate system, map projection, and geological boundaries.

    2. A location or project can have several MAPSETs. MAPSETs in GRASS GIS are a way of subdividing the project into different areas or project members.

    For more information on this topic read this document:

    http://grass.osgeo.org/grass64/manuals/helptext.html

    Modules/Commands

    When we work with GRASS GIS we use modules to make things happen. This modules or commands are organized by name based on the function that they perform. Display, imagery, raster, vector, or database. To use these commands/modules we will type the first letter of the module followed by a dot (.) followed by the specific task to be performed by the module.

    • v.in.org - is a vector command that will import vector data into various formats.
    • r.buffer -- will calculate a buffer zone along a raster line/areas.
    • d.ras -- will display a raster map.
    • i.ortho.photo -- will create a orthophoto from a scanned/digital aerial image.

    This link gives you a list of all modules/commands in GRASS GIS:
