GeoJSON Path Finder
GeoJSON Path Finder is a standalone JavaScript library for routing/path finding using GeoJSON as input. It can run offline in the browser without any server, or as a part of a Node.js application. It is ideal for simpler use cases where a more complete routing engine like OSRM or GraphHopper is overkill or not possible.

Travelogues: Perceptions of the Other 1500–1876 – A Computerized Analysis
This interdisciplinary and international project focuses on German language travelogues in the collections of the Austrian National Library, covering the period from 1500 to 1876. In order to analyze perceptions of “the other” and “the orient” in a large-scale text corpus, algorithms for the semi-automatized search for, and evaluation of, digitally available texts are being created.

Programme | Connected Past
How do social networks evolve over huge time-scales? How did geography constrain or enhance the development of past social networks? These are fundamental questions in both the study of the human past and network research, yet our ability to answer them is severely hampered by the limited development of spatiotemporal network methods. The Connected Past 2018 is a multi-disciplinary, international two-day conference that aims to provide a friendly and informal platform for exploring the use of network research in the study of the human past.

Early Modern Mobility | Research Group at Stanford University
During the early modern period (1500-1800), individuals and communities experienced dramatic changes in communication and transportation, establishing practices, institutions, and infrastructures that opened up new political and economic possibilities, and changed the way people understood the world. This multi-year collaboration will support a transregional study of mobility, incorporating multiple languages and national historiographies.

Programme – Mobility & Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe
The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and particularly to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by focusing on how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.
