Literature, geolocation and Wikidata (poster)

Finn Årup Nielsen

AbstractLittar was the second-prize winning entry in an app competition. It implemented a system for visualizing places mentioned in individual literary works. Wikidata acted as the backend for the system. Here I describe the Littar system and also some of the issues I encountered while developing the system: How locations and literature can be related, what types of location-literature relations are possible within Wikidata, what limitations there are and what questions we may ask once we have enough data in Wikidata.
