classical studies, literary studies, and philology have in recent years
experienced a “spatial turn” similar to that begun in prior decades within the
social sciences and archaeology. Many researchers in these fields are now
explicitly recording the spatial and temporal attributes of their data and
mapping them for visual analysis and argumentation. In many cases they are also
performing spatial or spatial-temporal computations, including but not limited
to viewshed, network, and cluster analyses, and agent-based and other models
and simulations are increasingly common. The software used for this work is the
same as that used for the environmental and social sciences: desktop GIS and
specialized spatial and natural language processing libraries for the Python
and R languages. These new spatial researchers are experiencing the same
representational and analytic challenges in studying geographical dynamics that
are well known to other disciplines, but they also face distinctive issues
related to the nature of historical humanities data. Furthermore,
epistemologies associated with new quantitative approaches must be reconciled with
their traditional methodological practices.<span></span></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="background:white"><span style="font-size:9.5pt;font-family:arial;color:rgb(34,34,34)"> <span></span></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="background:white"><span style="font-size:9.5pt;font-family:arial;color:rgb(34,34,34)">Spatial information theorists and geographic
