Connecting the Dots: Using Geolocation Data To Support Interactivity and Data Visualization

Geohumanities is an emerging field that applies geospatial methods and approaches to a variety of humanities-oriented projects and initiatives. This panel highlights several projects that incorporate maps and/or mapping to help approach a research area and/or develop research support for an academic community. The highlighted projects include an interactive global map contributed to by undergraduate architecture students’ engaged in exploring cross-disciplinary research methods as part of a foundational design course, two interactive map projects that have been designed as finding aids for art historical resources, a map that focuses on the history of Los Angeles art museums revealing questions about the role of place in the creation and sharing of art, and a mapping project that employs one item from an archive to make connections to related archival materials.
