Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The dataset covers the North Sea region (United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Denmark, Norway and Germany) and is made up of GIS shapefiles containing population numbers of (approximately) 100 cities with the highest population, for 8 reference years 1300, 1500, 1700, 1850, 1900, 1950, 1990 and 2015. The data set has been compiled on the basis of existing literature, supplemented with further research and provides a more detailed insight into the urbanization process around the North Sea.
