October 2010 Director's Report
New Projects
Network Pattern Recognition Project
ECAI has received a new grant of nearly $300,000 from the National Science Foundation for “Network Pattern Recognition Project.” Lewis Lancaster is the Principal Investigator and will work closely with Michael Buckland, Christos Faloutsos (Carnegie-Mellon), Tina Eliassi-Rad (Rutgers) and Timothy Tangherlini (UCLA). The purpose of the project is to explore the feasibility of using network analysis and visual analysis techniques developed for very large science databases for very large humanities data sets. For details see

Early California Cultural Atlas
The Early California Cultural Atlas project led by Steven Hackel, UC Riverside with Jeanette Zerneke, ECAI UCB has been awarded a Level II NEH Start-up Grant. Jeanette will be presenting at the Project Directors Meeting on September 28, 2010. The meeting is open to the public and will be filmed for later viewing on the NEH website. An introduction to the project can be seen at:

Future Meetings
In keeping with the current approach of ECAI to focus on workshops rather than conferences, we have planned and completed a number of events:
-- Remote Sensing Workshop in India (August, 2009). The proceedings are now available:
-- New Cultural Atlases Workshop at Fudan University, Shanghai (June 2010). This is being followed up by teams working on “Atlas of Martime Buddhism”, “Atlas of Islam in China”, “Atlas of Himalayan Buddhist sites.”)
-- ECAI will be meeting with Korea Advanced Institute for Science and Technology and the Society for Virtual Systems and Multimedia (VSMM) October 19-23 at the COEX Center, Seoul, Korea. The theme of the conference will be exploring the use of Virtual Systems with heritage and cultural data. This will be the site for another ECAI workshop dealing with pattern recognition and 3-D displays as well as Transdisciplinary methodology. For more on this event:
-- Later in the year, we will again meet with Pacific Neighborhood Consortium (PNC) at their 2010 conference being held jointly with City University of Hong Kong at the City University Nov 30 – Dec 3. One of the highlights of the meeting will be the demonstration of ECAI projects in the new immersive, 3-D theatres as the laboratory in the Science Park in Hong Kong under the direction of the Centre of Creative Media, ALIVE, and the Department of Chinese Translations and Linguistics of City University of Hong Kong.
The PNC 2010 website and related information will be announced soon.

Magyarországról az ECAI (Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative) kezdeményezéséhez HUNAGI közvetítéssel csatlakozott két tagszervezetének három szakembere is az ELTE Térképtudományi és Geoinformatikai Tanszékéről illetve a Nyugat-Magyarországi Egyetem Geoinformatikai Karáról.
A tudományterület a térinformatika kultúrális, történettudományi alkalmazása szempontból kimagasló jelentőségű.
