Digital Humanities and Archiving - Science topic
Digital Humanities and Archiving are this topic focuses on Digital Humanities through discussions on Humanities and History combined with interests in computing, information science (archiving, digital librarianship), and geospatial technology. I hope to include the role of archives in Digital History and Digital Humanities.

What are examples of texts describing spatial situations which either have been studied in the digital humanities or where doing so would be interesting?
Especially cases where the spatial information is too vague or uncertain to plot on a conventional map. Or maybe where the spatial relations are especially interesting in themselves rather than being seen as a defective means of giving more detailed information. Maybe psychogeographical writings or narratives of journeys, walks or wanderings where plotting on a map might sometimes be feasible but where the specificity of mapping detracts from the text itself?
Spatial relations might include "between", "next to", "near to", "to the right of", "crossing", "following alongside", "underneath" and so on. They could relate paths taken, tracts of territory, geographical features such as ponds, and so on.

Many projects use metadata. They are backbone to many data warehouse systems. There is a major drawback with metadata, though. The notion of metadata quality is neither agreed on nor even clearly laid out.
Bruce and Hillmann said 10 years ago 'Like pornography, metadata quality is difficult to define. We know it when we see it, but conveying the full bundle of assumptions and experience that allow us to identify it is a different matter. For this reason, among others, few outside the library community have written about defining metadata quality. Still less has been said about enforcing quality in ways that do not require unacceptable levels of human effort.'
What can we do about it? And if we could not agree on a definition of metadata quality, would it not be a failed concept?
Starting a new R&D project in this domain in January 2014, I would be eager to know of ongoing projects, best practices, etc. Many thanks in advance for your answers.
