This panel brings together four papers that span from modern Asia to contemporary Texas, arguing that spatial concepts and practices can serve as a bridge to connect distant topics, spaces and times. While grounded in separate contexts, all papers reveal the intricate relationships between space, power and mapping practices. This panel further suggests that mapping practices can play as a bridge between distant cultures and territories. Yet spatial policies also create new boundaries among local communities. At the methodological level, the panel demonstrates the values and challenges of using digital tools to conduct spatial analyses and to bridge past and present landscapes, from the digitization of historical cadasters to the use of GIS, an interactive timeline and a digital interface open to sharing and cooperation. Each project relies on interdisciplinary collaboration and sustained cooperation between researchers, engineers, designers and software developers.
