Maps & Timelines

DH101 introduces on two types of digital mapping: narrative-based and data-based. While these two approaches are not separate, they require different set of tools and platforms. UCLA is particularly active in the area of digital mapping, with the development of its own platform HyperCities and various 3-D modeling/simulation projects in the Classics, Architecture and Archeology departments. See Advanced Topics for tutorials on working with GIS-data, ArcGIS and Google Earth.

For DH101, Neatline will be used to generate narratives in maps and timelines. If you’re working with data, we recommend Geocommons for basic digital mapping, which can be also embedded in Omeka pages.
