This part of PORTIC develops three case studies, which will produce three online articles with a number of visualizations. The case studies use data on shipping (Navigcocoprus database) and the French Balance of Trade (program Toflit18).
The first case study (Sping and Summer 2021) deals with the office of the general Farm of La Rochelle, corresponding to three admiralty offices (La Rochelle, Marennes, Sables d’Olonne). It aims at understanding the multi-scalar shipping and trade of this region at the eve of the French Revolution.
The two following case studies (scheduled in 2022 and 2023) deal with Dunkerque in 1789, and Marseille (1749-1799) respectively.
