Oresme - inventor of data visualisation
Bishop Nicole Oresme of Lisieux (1320-1382) formulated the basic idea of data visualisation in his
"Tractatus de Configurationibus Qualitatum et Motuum" (1355). The Tractatus was copied in 1530 by Walterus Enchusen, a monk in the monastery Thabor situated in Tirns, a small village near Sneek in The Netherlands. The handwriting of Walterus Enchusen is available as "handschrift 103" in the library of the University of Groningen. The illustrations in "handschrift 103" are probably the first data visualisations ever drawn in The Netherlands.
