Short Project Description (150 words): The Urban Transition Historical GIS Project uses historical census data to document the state of U.S. cities from the end of the 19th Century into the early 20th Century.  These were the decades of America’s urban transition, fed by rapid growth of industry and large scale immigration from Eastern and Southern Europe that was directed primarily into cities.
