Final-year project explores Cork's English Market

22 Sep 2021

Recent Digital Humanities & Information Technology (CK118) graduate Daniella Traynor garnered some media attention this summer on account of her engaging final-year project, Exploring SHUA (Socio-economic History of Urban Areas). Exploring SHUA combines Deep Mapping, GIS, and historical archival media to explore socio-economic history through an inviting online experience.

Exploring SHUA demonstrates the possibilities emerging from the combination of close and deep mapping, geographic information systems and historical archives. Daniella's project reimagines this synthesis to provide more profound and more thoughtful engagement with otherwise distant information, bringing together previously disparate tools and methodologies to deliver an immersive and memorable experience.
