Ms. Knowles is the editor of two influential volumes: Past Time, Past Place: GIS for History (2002), which combines a deep appreciation of the strengths of traditional history with the technology of GIS, and Placing History: How Maps, Spatial Data, and GIS Are Changing Historical Scholarship (2008), which offers case studies and essays on key issues involving GIS, highlighting the unprecedented range of tolls to visualize historical information in a geographical context.
