I am intrigued about hand drawn maps as representations of space. The Hand Drawn Maps Association is an “ongoing archive of user submitted maps and other interesting diagrams created by hand”. Here is another collection.
Jon Christensen, Associate Director of the Spatial History Project at Stanford has put together an Open Toolbox for Digital and Spatial Humanities. It is part of a collaboration between the Spatial History Project and the Stanford Computer Graphics Lab and is supported by the Presidential Fund for Innovation in the Humanities.
This toolbox is a community effort and is constructed as a “wiki,” so that anyone can add links to tools, reviews of tools, suggestions and comments.
