In this paper we report some results related to the construction of a Geographical Information System on the historical center of the town of Benevento, realized 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 divided, in turn, in a series of files that collect on specific topics graphic and alphanumeric database, organized for different historical periods and different geographical scales. As we show through many examples, the specific architecture of this GIS facilitate the search of thematic pathways and can be advantageously used not only to support territorial planning for several purposes (such as the regulation of economicactivities and public services or the requalification of cultural heritage), but it is also valuable for scholarly research and scientific analysis.
