Abstract

A plurality of spatially diverse regions, each representing a unique commodity market, are defined within a given area (1001). Display data of the area and the constituent regions are provided (1002) such that a viewer of a visual depiction resulting from the display data can separately identify each of the regions. Based on the visual depiction, and optional textual displays (1003), selection information is provided corresponding to at least one of the regions (1004). In one embodiment, the area is an event venue, such as a stadium, theater, etc, and the regions encompass blocks of seat locations within the event venue deemed to be suitably similar as to constitute fungible commodities. The display data and the selection information are preferably conveyed via a computer communication system like the Internet. The present invention may be used to standardize various non-traditional commodities, thereby making them more suitable for trading, particularly through an on-line exchange system.
