SoftwareX (Elsevier) has published a DISSINET article on the Historical Geocoding Assistant, developed under the Czech Science Foundation EXPRO funding (lead author and developer: Adam Mertel). The article features the problems in the geocoding of historical datasets and presents the choices and challenges in the development of this specialized software as well as of a user test. It has been fun developping it, and now the application is out there for anybody to test, and geocode a table of locations made in (or transferred to) Google Sheets. Try it out.
