Spatial Thinking in the Social Sciences and Humanities
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign held a workshop last December 2006. From their site:
The objective is to reflect on how spatial thinking affects substantive
findings and changes the way research questions are approached, and to
assess the role of computation. The goal is to end up with useful
insights and recommendations on the requirements for cyberenvironments
and cyberinfrastructure for the social sciences and humanities.
Here are the abstracts of the participant speakers, listing a variety of example projects.
