The computer will do it: testing PYTHON and ARCMAP in the ITINERARIUM MARITIMUM

Núria Garcia Casacuberta


In this paper I would like to present some code to have the computer generate maps from texts. My test-case is a passage in the Itinerarium Maritimum. First of all, place names in the text will be identified. From there, some Python code will locate the coordinates by double-checking the place names with a reference document downloaded from the Pleiades Gazeteer. The data extracted will then be saved in a .txt file and inserted into mapping software, in this case ArcMap, in order to generate the cartographical image.

Paraules clau

Python; ArcMap; Itinerarium Maritimum; maps; Latin texts
