GIStorical Antwerp

GIStorical Antwerp is a project of the Centre for Urban History of the University of Antwerp in close cooperation with the Antwerp City Archives.

Phase I of the project, funded by the Hercules-Foundation and the University of Antwerp, started in September 2012. GIStorical Antwerp I uses the potential of GIS (Geographical Information Systems) to integrate all kind of historical data (maps, census data, iconography, address books etc. ) at the level of individual houses and households in the city of 19th century Antwerp.

GIStorical Antwerp II, also founded by the Hercules-Foundation extends this infrastructure in time (1500-2000) and space (suburbs). This website presents a link to the first intermediary results of the GIStorical-infrastructure. Check out our latest updates, news and activities here.

GIStorical Antwerp aims to be extended as the Antwerp Time Machine, part of the Time Machine FET Flagship appeal.
