Geo-spatial tools


Geospatial data, analysis and visualization are increasingly important components of humanities and social sciences research.

Location and references to parts of the Earth can allow researchers to better understand the often complex interrelationships existing between humanity and context as they occur over space-time.

Examples applications include:

  • Geocoding addresses or place names from historical artifacts
  • Georeferencing tables to join with statistical boundaries
  • Overlaying transport data on maps or imagery
  • Spatial analysing of city populations and changes in density
  • Mapping geographic features in an interactive, online map
  • Advanced visualisation of 3D scan data to communicate key findings
