Daniel Viragh, Creative Director of the Berkeley Historical GIS Project, gave an overview presentation of the work he and his team have been doing. The objective of the Berkeley Historical GIS Project is to visualize the historical industrial and commercial networks of the city of Budapest in 1896, based on data obtained from a contemporary address book. The research team combined a historical map of the city from that time with the data from the city directory. The eleven undergraduate students working on the project, who receive course credit and research experience through the Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP), co-presented at the exhibit.
