One of the main sport events in the world, the Tour de France (cycling) was created in 1903. We realized that, surprisingly, there were no database of every stage-cities (villes-étapes) : where has every Tour de France stage started since 1903, and where did they ended ? We created this database and a whole story about it, explaining how the Tour de France route has so much changed in more than a century. You can also find all sorts of datas, on which departement had the most starts and finish, the foreing stage-cities, and so on.

What makes this project innovative? What was its impact?

The project is very innovative as it is based on a database that didn't exist before. It helps us to understand how the Tour route has changed, and also why : political, historical and sports reasons are mixed in the Grande boucle history.

Technologies used for this project:

We used jQuery, svg and d3Js for this project, and of course html5, css and JQuery too.
