The LOCOMAT project (http://locomat.loria.fr) contains reconstructions of approximately 60 historical mathematical and astronomical tables (nearly 200 PDF files) and links to about 2,000 digitized tables on Google Books and elsewhere. (LOCOMAT stands for LORIA Collection of Mathematical Tables, but it could also be read as the LORIA Collection of Mathematical and Astronomical Tables. LORIA is a research center in computer science, located in Nancy, France.) After giving a brief summary of the history of mathematical and astronomical tables, this article describes that project.
