Harvard University’s WorldMap is a platform developed by the Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA) for scholars who wish to explore, visualize, edit, collaborate with, and publish geospatial information. This is a great tool for historical projects, as well as contemporary eco criticism, studies of urban environments and cosmopolitanism,  as well population studies. Users can track changes over time and make their own visualizations to highlight their work.

Researchers can upload, create and edit maps, share or edit view access, export raw data, use online cartographic tools, georeference, and publish work online. This is just one of many online digital humanities tools that enables a range of new methodological approaches and provides researchers with a fresh supply of data.
