Europolis

- Europolis aims at creating a geographical information system (SIG) in order to map and compare the evolution of the population in the European towns.

- If the population statistic data have been available for the majority of European countries, since 1800 for most of them, the main difficulty lies in the variety of the national definitions and representations of cities and local units from which each state makes a census of its own population.
