Diamond Bay Research was established by Merrick Lex Berman in 1998 to develop Geospatial datasets for Chinese History, and contributed directly to the creation and development of the China Historical GIS Project at Harvard University.

The geospatial research of DBR has been absorbed into various ongoing projects at the Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis.

Today, DBR provides consulting services for

  • East Asian geographic information,
  • Web mapping with Leaflet
