    1750-1850 cilimatological database world's oceans

    I had not heard of this website yet:
    Climatological Database for the World's Oceans 1750-1850
    http://www.ucm.es/info/cliwoc/
    
    This fascinating image from that website shows all the positions of the
    available observations in the CLIWOC database for the period 1750-1854,
    thereby indicating global "western nation" shipping routes and ship traffic
    volumes of the era:

    There are many maps on the site, showing all kinds of information about
    winds and routes.  It is fascinating to study them and think about the way
    navigation was done in that period.
