Thanks so much Andrea! I did reach out to DC By the Book so if I hear back I’ll be sure to share.
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.
