Crowdsourcing / Citizens’ science Cadastral maps Maps Digitization of collections GIS / HGIS Movable Heritage

In 2009, in the former Euregional Historical Centre Sittard-Geleen (now Archives De Domijnen) project was started: presenting digitally and georeferencing all cadastral information, starting with the year 1843 and later ‘filling the gap’ to the year 1970. It was and is mainly a citizen science project, which is facilitated by several archives and individuals.
Since then, many archives and historical societies in the province of Limburg have joined to add data, which is presented online bij the foundation LGGI.

Not only cadastral data, but also locations and stories about locations can be presented digitally, like in this case with the Stolpersteine. 
In the website, all data is presented in 4 languages: English, French, German and Dutch.
Every parcel is directly related to scans of the original data.

With the buttons ‘search’ and ‘options’ you can search through several ‘layers’ like topographic maps 2016 and 1843, satellite-map or relief-map 2016.
