Visualizing the threads of legal articles from a 111-years old Constitution

Between 2019 and 2023, the canton of Valais will be rewriting its constitution, which dates back to 1907. As a fundamental text defining the general principles of the State, the Constitution represents the source of all the cantonal laws promulgated between 1907 and 2018. From a data perspective, the links between constitutional articles and laws thus represent a network of nodes and links.
