Trading Consequences Project: "[A] a multi-institutional, international collaboration between environmental historians in Canada and computer scientists in the UK that uses text-mining software to explore thousands of pages of historical documents related to international commodity trading in the British Empire, involving Canada in particular, during the 19th century, and its impact on the economy and environment."

Trading Consequences White Paper: "This project has demonstrated that text mining techniques applied to tens of thousands of documents about nineteenth-century commodity trading can yield a novel understanding of how economic forces connected distant places all over the globe and how efforts to generate wealth from natural resources impacted on local environments."
