Great Britain Historical GIS Project

Von

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, http://hds.essex.ac.uk/gbh.stm) and to the digitized boundary data (available at the EDINA UKBORDERS service, http://edina.ac.uk/ukborders/).
