WG1 & WG2 reports

WG1. Space and Time
Group Leader: Leif Isaksen, UK

As high-level, cross-cutting concepts, Space and Time provide important reference points that transcend disciplinary boundaries. ICT approaches to representing and analysing these dimensions include GIS, statistical distribution metrics, dynamic webmapping, geo-referencing, network analysis, mobile computing, augmented reality and semantic annotation of places, periods and events.  Geospatial technologies are increasingly widespread in the arts and humanities, often in partnership with cultural heritage and memory organisations. ICT methods for dealing with time have an equally high potential of opening up new avenues of research.

WG2. Information Visualisation
Group Leaders: Fredrik Palm, Sweden and Orla Murphy, Ireland

Visualisation refers to techniques used to summarise, present and enact rich materials visually, and is becoming increasingly important as an integrated part of the research processes in the humanities. Visualisation is taken to include different types of interaction (e.g. sensor technology), technologies (including high-resolution and multiple displays) as well as materials such as geographical data sets, images, 3D representations, graphs, tables, networks, and archival materials.

Visualisation is used for both descriptive as well as analytical purposes. Technology and research methodology can together improve research in the humanities. However, these technologies need to be used critically since many techniques for visualisation are developed in other scientific areas meaning one has to consider issues concerning ambiguity and complexity.
