Modeling of humanities spatial-temporal data
Why are humanities scholars not happy with the present-day standard models of named places? What do humanities have to offer the geospatial community if terms of innovation and modelling principles? What are the potential long-term impacts of the suggested innovations? The session answers these questions by bringing in scholars and practitioners from the humanities research and government sectors heavily involved with place-names and other types of geospatial data. The approaches presented in the session widen applications of geospatial modelling; at the same time, these also introduce innovations such as “place-name concept variable” to account for phenomena omitted or simplified in the existing standards.
