"The Atlas presents in maps and text complete data about the creation and all subsequent changes (dated to the day) in the size, shape, and location of every county in the fifty United States and the District of Columbia. It also includes non-county areas, unsuccessful authorizations for new counties, changes in county names and organization, and the temporary attachments of non-county areas and unorganized counties to fully functioning counties. The principal sources for these data are the most authoritative available: the session laws of the colonies, territories, and states that created and changed the counties"--About the project.

The Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilization (DARMC) makes freely available on the internet the best available materials for a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) approach to mapping and spatial analysis of the Roman and medieval worlds. DARMC allows innovative spatial and temporal analyses of all aspects of the civilizations of western Eurasia in the first 1500 years of our era, as well as the generation of original maps illustrating differing aspects of ancient and medieval civilization. DARMC's coverage begins under the Roman empire and extends nearly a thousand years toward the present by encompassing the medieval world. Although the initial post-Roman focus has been on medieval Europe, Byzantium and the Crusades have not been neglected, and we have begun to include the essential third leg of the tripod of medieval civilization, the Islamic world. DARMC contains dozens of data layers in several geodatabases, that is, databases whose data is georeferenced or specified in terms of decimal degrees of latitude and longitude.

"EarthWorks is a discovery tool for geospatial (a.k.a. GIS) data. It allows users to search and browse the GIS collections owned by Stanford University Libraries, as well as data collections from many other institutions. Data can be searched spatially, by manipulating a map; by keyword search; by selecting search limiting facets (e.g., limit to a given format type); or by combining these options. Data are available from numerous research institutions across the United States covering a vast array of subjects and base layer information. Thousands of datasets in vector and raster format have been described at the individual layer level allowing for easy searching and retrieval. You will find both public and restricted data. The restricted data are tied to the institution that holds the content" -- Stanford digital libraries blog.

At approximately 1 km resolution (30" X 30"), LandScan is the finest resolution global population distribution data available and represents an ambient population (average over 24 hours). The LandScan algorithm uses spatial data and imagery analysis technologies and a multi-variable dasymetric modeling approach to disaggregate census counts within an administrative boundary. Since no single population distribution model can account for the differences in spatial data availability, quality, scale, and accuracy as well as the differences in cultural settlement practices, LandScan population distribution models are tailored to match the data conditions and geographical nature of each individual country and region.

"The Geofacets tool is designed to search for, and extract, maps, sections and other geographically-referenced geoscientific data from a very large and growing volume of published content. The interface is both interactive and intuitive, using a combination of a GoogleEarth map-based browser and a text-based search tool to capture georeferenced data and images which can then be collated into an interpretation. Search results are presented as thumbnail images with links to their corresponding read-only PDFs, full text (for subscribers) and pay-per-view (e.g. via Science Direct), and selected maps can be gathered for use in GIS software. All maps are accessible and downloadable, with over 140,000 Elsevier and Lyell Collection maps being tagged with georeferenced coordinates available as GeoTIFFs for subsequent analysis. The Lyell Collection is an outstanding resource covering the two centuries of GSL’s existence. Providing access via Geofacets significantly increases the value of the search tool, as well as increasing exposure for authors of Lyell content."--The Geological Society" website, viewed August 15, 2016

ORBIS: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World" reconstructs the time cost and financial expense associated with a wide range of different types of travel in antiquity. The model is based on a simplified version of the giant network of cities, roads, rivers and sea lanes that framed movement across the Roman Empire. It broadly reflects conditions around 200 CE but also covers a few sites and roads created in late antiquity

The Stanford Geological Survey (SGS) existed for 100 years, from 1895 until 1995. During this time, students and faculty went into the field to survey and map parts of California, Nevada and Utah. This is a collection of images of hand-drawn and -colored maps from the Survey, with catalog data about the maps.

This system aims to construct an integrated GIS-based application infrastructure within the spatial extent of China, in the timeframe of Chinese history, and with the contents of Chinese civilization. This system consists of three major components: basic geospatial materials, WebGIS integrated application environment, and thematic information. The fundamental base maps are based on Dr. Tan's "The Historical Atlas of China". "The Historical Atlas of China" provides users with Chinese historical features, covering Chinese history over the past 2000 years, from the ancient time to Qing dynasty.
