__Abstract :__

Since the late seventeenth century, the shipping newspaper Lloyd’s
List and its direct predecessors contain weekly and later daily
information on global shipping. The core of the Lists’ mostly tabular
contents is formed by the categories “Shipping Intelligence”,
“Speakings”, “Foreign Mail”, “Casualities”, and “War”. Inspection and
analysis of LLOYDS geo-tagged shipping information could provide
insights to the transformation of a variety of “global spaces” during
times of rapid globalization.

In this presentation, at first we present our research findings
regarding the most suitable approach for modeling LLOYDS data as well
as our experiences in design of a spatio-temporal data model for
geo-tagged shipping information. Afterwards, we share our experiences
regarding data capturing, database design and population. Finally,
statistical analysis of “speakings” information by means of hot-spots
detection and analysis are presented and discussed.
