About the Project

Project term: April, 2020–March, 2023

This research project explores methods for visualizing and analyzing information obtained from Islamic and Middle Eastern historical materials. GIS (Geographic Information System), TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), and VR (Virtual Reality) are used to analyze geographical information, text information, and spatial information, respectively. In practice, we aim to locate these techniques as new methods for historical analysis, identifying problems in the visualization methods and the analysis based on them.
