Abstract: From a historian's perspective, the use of GIScience and technology in the study of history holds the promise of an integration of historical and geographic modes of analysis. The national geographic information systems (GIS) that provide extensive coverage of changes in administrative structures over time provide important support for GIS-enabled historiography. Other parts of the cyberinfrastructure necessary to support collaborative research in a digital environment are now beginning to emerge, but a world-historical gazetteer, an essential tool for linking historical data to mapped places, has yet to be developed.
就史学者的角度而言, 在历史研究中运用地理信息科学与技术, 具有整合历史与地理分析模式的前景。全国地理信息系统 (GIS) 广泛地包覆了行政结构随着时间的变迁, 为由地理信息系统促成的历史地理学提供了重要的支援。信息基础建设中, 支援在数码环境中合作研究的其他必要部分目前正逐渐浮现, 但全球性的历史地名词典——一个将历史数据连结至已绘製于地图上之地方的必要工具——仍然尚未建立。
Desde la perspectiva del historiador, el uso de SIGciencia y tecnología en el estudio de la historia es algo prometedor para la integración de los modos de análisis históricos y geográficos. Los sistemas de información geográfica (SIG) nacionales que dan amplia cobertura a los cambios que ocurren a través del tiempo en las estructuras administrativas, proveen apoyo importante a la historiografía en la que los SIG han sido protagónicos. Otras partes de la ciber-infraestructura que se requiere para la investigación colaborativa en un entorno digital están ahora empezando a aparecer, aunque un diccionario histórico-geográfico mundial—herramienta esencial para enlazar los datos históricos con los lugares cartografiados—todavía está por realizarse.
