Spatial Humanities is research that combines humanities, environmental sciences and geography-based practices to study physical, cognitive, perceptual and relational aspects of the human spatial experience
Geographical Text Analysis (GTA) is a relatively recent development in the approach to studying, analysing, and extracting the content of textual sources that offers a new method for combining techniques from Natural Language Processing (NLP), Corpus Linguistics, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Humanities research. This module offers a step-by-step guide with real data, with a focused interest in querying the geographic nature of textual sources, and analysis of spatial information on a large scale.
This workshop, focussing on "Spatial data medieval to modern", is the first of a series of workshops from the NOS-HS project "Linking, Building, and Sustaining Humanities Digital Spatial Infrastructures for Research in the Nordic Countries". The main aims of this workshop were to define key concepts (spatial infrastructures, Linked Open Data, metadata, ontology), outline major challenges in the field, and to provide an opportunity to share experiences of addressing the issues in individual and national projects across the Nordic countries.
This video recording is of 'Using Digital Archives for Geographical and Archaeological Research', the second webinar in a three-part public lecture series hosted by the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI), aimed at early career researchers. The webinar showcases the rich research resources contained in digital archival collections that can be used to advance geographical and archaeological research.
Do you work with digital images in a humanities discipline? Are you interested in exploring the spatial properties of your dataset but don't know how? Or maybe you are just curious on the topic. This workshop aims to introduce participants to the technologies and technical abilities required for the spatial exploration of image datasets and is of interest to a variety of digital humanities students, scholars and professionals.
