The Marriage of Standards and Access: Centralized Services as a Tool for Collaboration, Publication and Curation
By providing an accessible and broadly applicable product tied to a suite of sophisticated web services, the university can not only empower young scholars and pilot projects but also foreground important issues surrounding digital scholarly media. Spatial humanities media provides the best opportunity to develop these products, given the maturity of theory, tools and data standards. Here demonstrated is one such solution, using the Drupal CMS tied to Geoserver and PostGIS.
