The Spatial Humanities

Today's New York Times has a fascinating article on the "spatial humanities" - the use of Geographic Information Systems for mapping historical events: Geographic Information Systems Help Scholars See History.

I want to do something like this for my Jerusalem course. I wrote a proposal for an in-house grant, but unfortunately didn't get it, but I'm still interested in doing it.
