De l'espace aux graphes. Mesurer les dynaamiques spatiales des terroirs villageois

Abstract : Terriers, compoix, land registers and other documents of the same kind provide us with a large amount of rich and precise information concerning the organization of pre-industrial rural space. For each area, hundreds of plots are described and localized in an interconnected pattern, making it possible to analyze the spatial organization of the country areas. It is not rare to find that, with reference to a particular place, there is documentary continuity and homogenous information from the last centuries of the Middle Ages until the land registers of our own day, allowing for comparison between successive stages of the same piece of land. No one has heretofore managed to integrate into the same matrix, to process and compare the spatial information contained in documents from successive periods referring to the same piece of land. This article shows how the mathematical theory of graphs can help find solutions to this problem.
