The New Orleans Mortality Project is an ongoing interdisciplinary project that is pushing the methodological frontier of digital humanities and historical research. This project combines quantitative and qualitative sources in an historical geographic information system (HGIS) to examine how the spatial and temporal patterns of health, environment, and socioeconomics impacted individual, community, and urban development in New Orleans, 1877-1915.
