My interactive map of Canada uses the SIMILE project’s Exhibit and Timeline scripts to pull georeferenced data from a Google spreadsheet. This project was funded in part by a grant from the Foundation for Canadian Studies in the UK, and I designed this as a resource for those teaching and researching Canadian literature from outside Canada. However, anyone else who wishes to use it is most welcome: just drop me an email to get access to the spreadsheet.
My interactive map of modernist Paris also uses the SIMILE scripts to plot points related to John Glassco’s Memoirs of Montparnasse, and information relating to other significant figures within literature and culture in the early decades of the twentieth century.
This map of the locations in the final section of Alistair McLeod’s No Great Mischief was built as an experiment to practise D3.js. If you’ve read this book and wondered what it is like to cross the Canso Causeway in a storm, find that place on the map and click on the book icon and you’ll find out.
Here are two visualisations of the places referred to Lilian Pizzichini’s biography of Jean Rhys, The Blue Hour.
The second, created with the QGIS plugin Qgis2threejs, is a mockup (using very inadequate data) of the places in London that are mentioned most often in The Blue Hour.
