Du cadastre ancien au graphe. Les dynamiques spatiales dans les sources fiscales médiévales et modernes

Abstract : Medieval and modern tax documents (fieldbooks, "compoix", cadasters...) give a rich spatial information. Whole territories are described plot per plot at different succesive periods. Nevertheless, historians don't know how to relate different states of spatial information on the long term. Moreover, there are no plot plans before the 17th and 18th century. We want to overcome this methodological lock with the following proposition: modelling ancient plots described in tax documents using the topological proprieties of the graph theory. The translation of the spatial data into graphs should allow to set up a commun language between the historical documents, mapped and not mapped. The article talks about the fondamental method choices and the used process to transform the spatial information of ancient plans into graphs which will allow us not only to compare them together, but also to compare them with cadastral registers that have no plan. Finally, it is within a Geographic Information System that will be tested the pertinence of comparing possibilities while studying the plot changes according to the spatiotemporal operators of changement (creation, disappearance, stability, dilatation, contraction, fusion, fission, deformation).
