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.
