About

The concept behind “Geospatial Publishing” (as I’m using it) is that geospatial visualization platforms are not merely back-end tools supporting other forms of media but are themselves effective publishing platforms for communicating knowledge about history and other social sciences.  This is important because traditional text-based publications often fail to effectively communicate the spatio-temporal elements inherent in these types of scholarship.

This blog serves as a platform for me to discuss specific  Geospatial Publishing and New Media projects I am working on with the intention of demonstrating and improving my skills as a developer, technologist and writer.  It will include semi-technical documentation of specific projects, workflows, process, discussion of how I have approached particular problems, etc.

I also plan to blog about other peoples’ geospatial projects, the developing field of Digital Humanities, other forms of New Media publications, and other subjects related to my interests and professional development.

      RB,
      you broke one of my cardinal rules – never quote Einstein aphorisms! Particularly that Love/Gravity one, ugh.- AGT
