Project: Population atlas of the Netherlands
The project aims to develop an interactive population atlas of the Netherlands based on the previously published Bevolkingsatlas van Nederland (Population Atlas of the Netherlands) compiled by NIDI. The interactive population atlas intends to describe both historical and current population trends in the Netherlands using maps, graphs and explanatory texts. The maps are presented in an interactive application.
The application below shows an example of an interactive map from the interactive population atlas of the Netherlands. The map presents the regional distribution of infant mortality rates in the Netherlands by municipality in the period 1841-1939:
