179 Putting Classic Literature on the Map with the MetaCarta GeoParser API Gutenkarte is a project sponsored by MetaCarta, Inc. that offers geographic visualization of classic works of Western literature drawn from Project Gutenberg. We will show how MetaCarta's GeoParser API web service can be used to build rich applications that derive geographic information from unstructured text. We will also see how Gutenkarte leverges the OSGeo software stack, by making use of existing tools like PostGIS, MapServer, and OpenLayers.
