datasetposted on 23.01.2020 by Albin Larsson
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This dataset contains a list of all locations mentioned in 1645 year's gazette Post- och Inrikes Tidningar(Swedish for "Post and Domestic Times"). Each edition has gotten the location for where it were summarized marked. From the result one can for example visualize the diplomatic presence of Sweden in Hamburg, the Swedish control over Wismar, and the post station in Markaryd.
Not all editions has a location of summary marked. This is often caused by the summary being written from temporary military camps which locations remains unknown.
