Normalizing geospatial data is a method used to adjust the data sets to a common geographic unit or scale. This allows researchers to compare datasets with different geographic coverages.

See the Longitudinal Tract Data Base (LTDB) from Brown University as an example; this project provides estimates using 2010 Census Tract boundaries for a standard set of variables from 1970 through 2010.
