Great Britain Historical GIS Project


Southall, Humphrey / Gregory, Ian / Ell, Paul

This project is creating a Historical Geographical Information System (GIS) for Great Britain covering the period from the late 1830s, when modern sta[t]istical data collection can be said to have started, until the early 1970s, when data starts to become available in digital form. The GIS has two major components; accurate boundary data for the changing administaive areas of Britain linked to a major database of social, economic, and electoral statistics from throughout the period. This, we hope, will become a major resource for researchers interested in any or all of the period, as well as providing the backbone for the production of a major new atlas covering British history over the past 200 years. The website offers detailed information about the project, an experimental on-line historical gazetteer, and sample maps. From here, access is provided to the Great Britain Historical Database Online (available at the History Data Service, and to the digitized boundary data (available at the EDINA UKBORDERS service,
