2) GEOREFERENCED HISTORICAL VECTOR
Now the Euratlas Georeferenced Historical Vector
Data licences are ready for 21 centuries. Let us recall these
historical databases include the shapes, long form names, short form
political status and dependencies - i. e. owner and holder entities -
of all the known European
countries for each century from year 1 until year
2000. Moreover, all
the known first and second level administrative divisions are
provided and the databases include also nearly 3000 places and towns,
with their importance degree and local name of the time, to help
location. These data allow you to modify and organize spatially your
own map and are particularly adapted for:
archeological or cultural researches,
- creation of exhibition
or museum wall maps,
- textbooks or national historical maps,
- educational or strategy games.
In the Euratlas Shop, you will find for each century
a .zip archive containing a sample
file, and a link towards the bibliography
and, on the same page,
a small summary map.
