About the Cluster

By combining vector and raster data at the intersection of time and space, projects in this cluster offer new ways for historians to visualize specific sites of inquiry, for architects and urbanists to see proposed design projects in situ, for literary scholars to map out novels, for space enthusiasts to track rovers and drones on Mars, and, among others, for archaeologists to delaminate the layers of their complex stratigraphy. Users can also run searches by polygons, change the transparency of georeferenced maps and plans, and consult “film strips” that show all available views, maps, plans, and aerials for a particular moment in time. Scaled down into a mobile version, scholars, tourists, and residents alike are able to walk about cites, sites, and events while visualizing them as they once were, as well as they were once projected.
