Where your book meets the map

placingliteraturePlacing Literature is crowd-sourced online database of locations from literary works launched in June of 2013. Users of the site can add markers to the shared map, indicating not only the title and author of the book being charted, but also a description of the location, the time of day, the characters present in the scene, and other notes. In keeping with the crowd-sourced nature of the site, the map data is freely downloadable as a spreadsheet so that you can work with the information using other tools or in your own applications.
