GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:
I had a quite pleasant conversation this morning with Andrew Williams and Katie Williams, two of the founders of an interesting Literature project called "Placing Literature: Where Your Book Meets the Map."
Their focus is specifically on creating a map-based data base of locations that have been locations from literature. Their audience is primarily the general population rather than the specific education audience, We discussed the possibility of collaborating and/or partnering our efforts to the benefit of both of our audiences.
I am particularly intrigued by their crowd sourcing the data collection. Anyone can contribute data for a literary location by simply clicking location on the map which opens up a brief set of data entry cells. Fill in the info and you've added to the map. It's pretty simple.
Though more designed to document the locations than to follow a literary journey, as is the focus of Google Lit Trips, I'm certain that the growing database will be of interest to bibliophiles and book clubs and the general public.
I'm looking forward to the possibilities of collaborating with Andrew and Katie so that both of our audiences benefit from the effort.
