The research teams are responsible for compiling the base datasets of historical administrative units. The technical teams are responsible for the digitization, coding, and organization of the spatial data into GIS. The management committee is responsible for the funding, publication and distribution of the CHGIS data products. The advisory committee provides both vision and oversight.
