Abstract

Digital geographies have become more totalising to the point of being an essential component to the study and understanding of geography as both field and experience. Along with the geographical role in data analysis came the creation of “smart cities”, whereby data and predictive algorithms promised and still promise to predict flows of traffic, speed up emergency responder pathways, and lessen crime. GIS has also proved a core concern of the growing interdisciplinary field of the digital humanities. With the use of qualitative and quantitative methods in dialogue, projects in digital humanities promote continued interdisciplinary conversation, which can support significant headway for future digital geographic research. The scholarship of geographic thought, theory, and method is in a prime position to attend to issues of digital ethics and offer intervention for digital activisms.
