In recent years, temporal and spatial analysis has taken root in several closely connected areas of the humanities. The extraction of temporal information from text,  e.g. from news, has become a major research topic in Human Language Technologies and has been widely used in related applications such as question answering and automatic summarization systems. Also the study and the exploitation of spatial information in history and literature has received a great deal of attention in recent years, especially thanks to the possibilities offered by geographical information systems (GIS).
