NeDiMAH workshop on Space & Time in Digital Humanities: Place, Period, Event, Entity based approaches to space and Time 30 November 2011, London, UK
This workshop focused on conceptual approaches to space and time, as opposed to geometric and coordinate based methods. Such approaches have proven useful in contexts in which exact spatial location is unknown, uncertain or
irrelevant, and can also prove a powerful catalyst for establishing connections between heretogeneous data (Linked Data). Topics included the creation, maintenance and application of spatial and temporal ontologies, gazetteers and other conceptual schemes. It was based around a series of sessions addressing the concepts of ‘place’ (spatial concepts), ‘period’(temporal concepts) and ‘event’ (concepts intersecting space and time).
