A dataset in Codex is a collection of facts -- whether statistical, like mortality figures or event-related like the weather -- belonging to the same subject. Datasets can be related to the historical sources they derive from, as well as to general subjects. Facts in a dataset (usually) refer to a specific time and place, hence can be plotted on both charts and maps. They often also include descriptions which turn them from being anonymous statistics into human stories.

|1478-05-17||Disinterments (Landucci)||1 person||Florence||Some boys disinterred it (the body of Messer Jacopo) a second time, and dragged it through Florence by the piece of rope that was still round its neck; and when they came to the door of his house, they tied the rope to the door-bell, saying: "Knock at the door!" and they made great sport all through the town.||
