In this paper we report some results related to a new Geographical Information System for the historical center of the town of Benevento, created with financial support from the Region of Campania (POP action 5.4.2 for cataloguing and appreciation of cultural assets). Supplementing extensive official data sources with our own direct investigations, we organize the resulting information into three main archives: territorial, historico-artistic, socio-economic. Each of these archives is in turn divided in a series of files that comprise of graphic and alphanumeric databases on specific topics. For example, the territorial archive includes: boundaries, urban planning, territorial divisions, land register, and so on; whereas the socio-economic archive includes databases on population, houses, commercial activities, building use, traffic density, etc., organized according to historical periods and geographical scales. We provide many examples to illustrate how the specific architecture of this GIS facilitates the search of thematic pathways, which can be used advantageously not only to support territorial planning for diverse purposes (such as regulation of economic activities and public services or re-qualification of cultural heritage), but it is also valuable for scholarly research and scientific analysis.
