Hi Suzanne,


I stumbled across Google’s Placing Literature project earlier today and am planning to check it out.  I know DC By the Book uses Google Maps, but DC has numerous elements that take their project many, many steps beyond Placing Literature.  I don’t have a moment right now to delve deeper, so this may not be a viable alternative/element for a broader project.  Still thought it was worth a share.  Maybe one of you knows more about it.

Hi, Suzanne, 


That may have been on my to-do list to follow up with them on this question ... and I haven't yet.  If you want to take the lead, the email is

Has anyone had any luck finding out if we all can use the software that DC used for their Literary map?
