The Expansion of Baltimore's Streetcar Suburbs: A Digital Humanities Approach

One emerging trend in the humanities is Digital Humanities; essentially applying the power of technology to traditional humanities topics. One subdiscipline of this is GeoHumanities: the idea of exploring a places’ impact on a topic. The concept of GeoHumani/es was used to explore the historic growth of Baltimore’s streetcar suburbs from 1880-1920. Using a Geographic Informa/on System (GIS) the author was able to visualize the growth of the streetcars lines and the building of the suburbs.
