Trading Consequences
The "Trading Consequences" database and visualization tools allow researchers to explore the history of 19th-century commodities and commodity trading. Drawing from over 170,000 documents, Trading Consequences pulls geographic and date Info. related to nearly 2,000 commodities and displays them in a variety of novel, interactive and complementary ways, including time series, word clouds and geospatial maps. Four search engines allow users to identify the changing relationships between commodities and their sites of production and consumption over time, while at the same time providing greater context by exploring the specific context of those relationships in the sources themselves. You can begin to explore Trading Consequences by clicking on the link below and scrolling down to select one of the four search engines. Let us know what you think!
