The major goal of GIStorical Antwerp is to build a micro-level data tool for historical Antwerp, but transferable to other cases as well, constructing a series of vector maps, linked to a variety of historical geo-data. Thanks to a unique combination of a critical mass of already existing databases and a clear focus on households as major agents of social behavior, we believe this cutting-edge tool will result in a truly innovative “integrated social history” of the city.
