Spatial is the largest by far. Stretching back to 1976, when Negroponte and three others proposed the Spatial Data Management System, researchers have been captivated by the dream geography of data space. They all face the same problem, however, that has rendered the desktop obsolete: scaling. How do you represent such a huge space on such a small screen?
The police had confiscated a simple gold cross that a woman wore around her neck after pulling her over for a minor traffic violation.

Traditional warfare: Dani tribesmen fighting with spears in the Baliem Valley of the New Guinea Highlands. The highest one-day death toll in those wars occurred on June 4, 1966, when northern Dani killed face-to-face 125 southern Dani, many of whom the attackers would personally have known (or known of). The death toll constituted 5% of the southerners’ population. Photo credit: Karl G. Heider.
