A special issue of ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (ISSN 2220-9964).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: geodemographics; spatial humanities; historical GIS; virtual cities; history of quantitative geography and GIS
Since the middle of the 2000s, digital humanities (DH) research projects involving the collaboration and uniting of researchers from both the humanities and sciences fields have begun developing even within the conventional humanities world to build archives of academic materials using information and communication technology (ICT), analyzing cultural contents, publishing research results, focusing on how the results are to be shown, and so forth. Of these, the historical geographical information systems (GIS) using geospatial information have served as a spatial turn in the humanities and become central to the creation of new academic fields within humanities, such as GeoHumanities and Spatial Humanities. These ensure a significant development in new, project-based research styles through interdisciplinary and international collaborations using historical GIS.
This Special Issue aims to promote new and innovative studies and to propose new possibilities of interdisciplinary and collaborative research within the humanities in order to improve historical GIS and the digital humanities with a spatial turn.Prof. Keiji Yano
