great britain historical GIS project

The Great Britain Historical Geographical Information System is a unique digital collection of information about Britain’s localities as they have changed over time. Information comes from census reports, historical gazetteers, travellers’ tales and historic maps, assembled into a whole that is much more than the sum of its parts.

We have been funded by the UK National Lottery to make the resource available on-line to everyone, presenting our information graphically and cartographically. The first version of our Vision of Britain through Time is now live. This site tells you more about the project, and about historical GIS.
