The threat of terrorism in our homeland became horrifically real on September 11, 2001.
The shock was felt at home and around the world. The subsequent response to this threat
has taken many forms, including the development of new technologies intended to provide
a technical advantage that can aid in thwarting terrorism. One important area for technical
advancement is the development of advanced information technologies to support the
homeland security mission. For centuries we have been improving our ability to collect
information, and this will continue. However, our ability to analyze this information is sorely
lacking. The information is massive, complex, incomplete, and uncertain, and it encompasses
all data forms, languages, and cultures. Technologies are needed that will support the
application of human judgment to make the best possible use of this information and share it
with others as appropriate to prevent, deter, and respond to threats. The US Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) chartered the National Visualization and Analytics Center™ (NVAC™)
in 2004 with the goal of helping to counter future terrorist attacks in the United States and
around the globe. A major objective for NVAC is to define a long-term research and
development (R&D) agenda for visual analytics to address the most pressing needs in R&D to
facilitate advanced analytical insight. Under the leadership of the Pacific Northwest National
Laboratory (PNNL), the R&D agenda for visual analytics was developed to define the directions
and priorities for future R&D programs focused on visual analytics tools. This agenda,
Illuminating the Path, provides a coordinated technical vision for government and industrial
investments and helps ensure that a continual stream of technology and tools enter the hands
of analysts and emergency responders.

Archival Theory and Digital Historiography:
Selection, Search, and Metadata as Archival Processes for Assessing Historical Contextualization
Joshua Sternfeld

Abstract Digital history, a field within the digital humanities, has challenged the disciplinary
boundary that in recent decades has come to separate the work of historians and archivists.
A new theory and methodology that draws from both disciplines can create a shared vocabulary
for the production, use, and evaluation of digital historical representations, a broad term that
encompasses an array of products such as archives, databases, geospatial visualizations, and
mobile applications. This article argues that archival theory, when combined with historiography
and technical or computational standards, contributes to a new theory called digital historiography.
Digital historiography is defined as the interdisciplinary study of the interaction of digital
technology with historical practice. Three archival processes—selection, search, and the
application of metadata—form the theory’s foundation for determining a digital historical
representation’s contextualization, which may aid in assessing its trustworthiness and
effectiveness to communicate historical knowledge.
