Dijon Market

Novelty and innovation being central themes of our contemporary world, data analysis is often concerned with predicting the future. But data analysis is also a tool for uncovering the past, for connecting with our roots, and for remembering that many phenomena are timeless, such as the fluctuation in commodity prices. This series visualizes commodity prices from the Dijon market during the 16th and 17th centuries.
