Dr. Arya Basu, a research fellow at the Emerging Analytics Center and an assistant professor of Computer Science at UALR, presented at a roundtable discussion on ‘Methods and Evaluation in the Historical Mapping of Cities’ at the Association for Computers and the Humanities (https://ach.org/) last month.
The context is: how do we preserve primary sources about a city’s evolution for the public discourse by being deliberate and mindful in architecting a public-facing mapping project hosted here > https://atlanta.urbanspatialhistory.org/buildings/1928. The project utilizes geodatabases of historical geographic features appended with information acquired from historical geocoders to create data-rich and engaging community and educational exploration interfaces. A team of interdisciplinary staff members, researchers, and graduate and undergraduate students work together to foster innovative methods and creative ideas to disseminate an existing body of work.
