- Author(s): Horne, Ryan
- et al.
This talk outlines theoretical and methodological approaches of digital gazetteers, and highlights the increasing use and importance of Linked Open Data (LOD) in the practice of digital spatial humanities. It explores how a wide variety of research projects and pedagogical approached can use LOD resources and initiatives to answer basic research questions, create maps, and view spatial networks which challenge traditional conceptions of cartography and data visualizations. In addition, this talk will discuss how projects can make significant contributions to the growing spatial and environmental humanities digital ecosystem.
