CShapes is a new dataset that provides historical maps of state boundaries and capitals in the post-World War II period. The dataset is coded according to both the Correlates of War and the Gleditsch and Ward (1999) state lists, and is therefore compatible with a great number of existing databases in the discipline. Provided in a geographic data format, CShapes can be used directly with standard GIS software, allowing a wide range of spatial computations. In addition, we supply a CShapes package for the R statistical toolkit. This package enables researchers without GIS skills to perform various useful operations on the GIS maps.
@en (Nederlands hieronder) Today, The Netherlands consists of nearly 400 municipalities. Back in 1812, there were more than 1100 municipalities. This datasets describes the history of municipalities from 1812 to present day. This dataset is a must-have when analysing or visualising Dutch municipality time-series data, or when studying individual level data in municipality contexts. This dataset consists of the 'Repertorium van Nederlandse gemeenten vanaf 1812' by Ad van der Meer en Onno Boonstra and NLGis shapefiles of Onno Boonstra available via DANS, for which the municipality borders were registered from 1812 to 1997. For the contemporary period (1997-today) the IISH and Webmapper have provided the missing information and provide yearly updates for, amongst others, the Dutch Electoral Council (Kiesraad).
@nl Nederland telt bijna 400 gemeenten. In 1812 waren dat er meer dan 1100. In twee eeuwen vol herindelingen, annexaties en fusies heeft Nederland bijna 1700 gemeenten gekend. De data van gemeentegeschiedenis is gebouwd op twee datasets: het Repertorium van Nederlandse gemeenten vanaf 1812 van Ad van der Meer en Onno Boonstra en de bij DANS gedeponeerde NLGis shapefiles van Onno Boonstra, waarin van elk jaar van 1812 tot 1997 de gemeentegrenzen zijn vastgelegd.
Population of European, Middle Eastern and North African cities from 700 to 2000 (in thousands). Expanded and revised figures for Europe by Eltjo Buringh are included seperately. Published paper introducing these data can be found [here] (https://www.mitpressjournals.org/doi/pdf/10.1162/REST_a_00284).

The Catasto is a tax survey conducted in Florentine territory between 1427 and 1429. This version uses the data of David Herlihy and Christiane Klapisch-Zuber as described in their book Tuscans and their Families: A Study of the Florentine Catasto of 1427. The dataset holds information on c. 60,000 households, including wealth, debts and assets, household size, property ownership, and sometimes the occupational status of the head.

The International Institute of Social History (IISH) is one of the world's foremost research institutions in the field of social history. The institute investigates how labour and labour relations develop globally in the long term. To this end, the institute collects archives and data on a global scale. This dataset brings together archives, library, audiovisual material and research datasets.
Dataset containing over 375,000 observations of stature of individuals (predominantly males), sometimes including more indicators such as age or occupation. Observations run from the seventeenth through the twentieth century and cover different countries. See the attached file 'Dataset description' for more information on data provenance and sources.
This dataset is based on the images in the collection of the IISH marked "Amsterdam". It contains metadata on the objects in the collection, like photo's and posters. For AdamLink they are linked to other cultural heritage objects in Amsterdam by means of AdamLink uri's for streets, buildings, districts and persons.
Slave trade has so far mainly focused on the Atlantic trade. For Asian trade voyages have been studied by looking at a journey as a place of departure and a final place of arrival. However, vessels made several stops creating 'subvoyages'. We use Linked Data to visualize and analyse the relations between voyages and subvoyages.
The raw sample data and conversion scripts are available here.
