The Historical GIS Research Network:

The Historical Geographical Information Systems (HGIS) Research Network was set up with funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) under its Research Seminars Competition.

The Network has four main aims:

1. To provide a focus for Historical GIS research in Europe.

2. To advance our understanding of Historical GIS at the technical, methodological and applied levels.

3. To encourage the adoption of GIS amongst a broad audience of researchers who have an interest in the past.

4. To investigate the setting up of an international association to act as a focus for historical GIS research.

This website describes the events organised by the Network or relevant to it, and provides a portal for a wide variety of links and resources relevant to Historical GIS Research including details of training events, a large bibliography, and lists of projects, websites, organisations and software relevant to historical GIS and historical maps.
