"You can join the latest phase of our project, which features over 50,000 more maps from the British Library collections. Help us identify accurate locations for these historic maps! Bear in mind that some places have changed significantly or disappeared completely, creating a puzzle that reveals an exciting contrast.
Your name will be credited, and your efforts will significantly improve public access to these collections. Contributors can see the results of their work, as well as the progress of the pilot and other participants, and the top contributor will be publicly announced."
"PASE Domesday GIS is the first freely-available database of Domesday Book linked to a Geographical Information System (GIS). It facilitates powerful analysis and mapping functions, designed to enable users to identify landholders in Domesday Book with greater speed and precision than has ever been possible.
It is intended to serve as a research tool suitable for a wide range of users with an interest in this period: whether academics in various disciplines, or local historians, or students in schools and universities, or those exploring the past for reasons of their own."
