An Empirical Investigation of South Korean Economic History using Spatial Data and Machine Learning
Did the invasion of the North Korean Army during the 1950-1953 Korean War hinder rural development along the attack routes? In this webinar, I demonstrate how spatial data and machine learning algorithms can help prepare data to investigate the question. Spatial datasets include historical print maps from a century ago, current building register shapefiles, and digital elevation raster data.
