Generating Narratives through Timespace Data 台大數位典藏研究發展中心蔡炯民博士演講_20130605

  1. 1. Generating Narratives through Time-Space Data Chiung-min Tsai Research Center for Digital Humanities National Taiwan University June 5, 2013
  2. 2. Purpose • A narrative is a representation of a history, biography, or process in which a sequence of events has been constructed into a coherent story. • Telling stories trough space and time • Uncovering or answering new questions about past times, past spaces
  3. 3. Emerging Trend • • • • • • Geo-visualization Geospatial Narratives Spatial Humanities Deep Maps Qualitative GIS Narrative GIS
  4. 4. Humanities versus GIS contrasting epistemologies • GIS – space as entities, fields, objects, attributes, spatial primitives, geometric topology, schemas, focus on accuracy and precision, and ultimately, reductionism – Spatial analysis, modeling, optimizing solution space – Scientific method – quantitative and cartographic space • Humanities – – – – – Nuanced emphasis on the individual and the unique Prominent role of story telling and multiple media Question the emergent complex of text and narrative Interlace textures of experience, memory, artifact Maintain imprecision, uncertainty, ambiguity GIS as a Narrative Platform
  5. 5. Data (1) Event: semantic elements (who did what), (2) Time: temporal elements (when), (3) Place: spatial elements (where)
  6. 6. Data Representation • Types of Spatial Data: – points, – lines, – polygons • Coverage of different time
