Spatial Thinking in the Social Sciences and Humanities

UIUC Holds GIS Conference/Workshop.

UIUC and NCSA sponsored a conference/workshop titled "Spatial Thinking in the Social Sciences and Humanities" This workshop brought together leading figures from various disciplines in the social sciences and humanities who use spatial analysis and GIS in their work. The objective was to reflect on how spatial thinking affects substantive findings and changes the way research questions are approached, and to assess the role of computation. The goal was to end up with useful insights and recommendations on the requirements for cyberenvironments and cyberinfrastructure for the social sciences and humanities.
