Project to Trace Human Migration
As I was setting up a demo machine and waiting for Visual Studio .Net to install, I flipped through an issue of ComputerWorld and found an interesting article on IBM and the National Geographic Society teaming up to trace human migration. I would assume there will be some mapping and GIS spatial analysis in this project.
There was a time back in college after I returned from my mission to Guatemala that considered studying anthropology but after a few classes I became more interested in Geography and the study of why behind the where. However anthropological studies like this one that have a spatial component are still very interesting to me. It will be interesting to see what comes out of this IBM / NGS project.
