Spatial Humanities - a Project of the Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship

The aim of this website from the University of Virginia seems to also follow a transdisciplinary kind of model in regards to GIS as a tool for humanities research. It includes:

  • a set of framing essays on the spatial turn across the disciplines

  • an evolving, crowdsourced catalog of research resources and featured projects and organizations

  • related feeds from Q&A sites and social media

  • a peer-reviewed, occational publication for step-by-step helpsheets and tutorials in humanities GIS.

There is research and projects in a variety of disciplines, including architecture. Although it is not exactly how we are looking at GIS and social media, I thought it was interesting to see current research on the uses of GIS in a variety of different contexts.
