Description: DECIMA is an historical GIS resource that allows historians to track developments in settlement and mobility over a period of intense economic and social development in Florentine history. The DECIMA mapping tool presents an expansive aerial view of the city that can be easily navigated like other online mapping tools. It allows users to select individual households and access a wide range of data on household size and composition, occupation, and value.
