poetry map app
October 12, 2016
Here’s another poetry map app (for iOS and Android). This one was launched in London, England, but hopes to expand worldwide and invites your suggestions. Poetic Places ties together geography, poetry, history, images and sound. If you leave it running in the background, Poetic Places will alert you when you’re nearing a significant site; if you’d rather plan your poetry route, you can search by location.
A collaboration between the British Library and Sarah Cole of TIME/IMAGE, Poetic Places has an informative website as well as a Facebook page and a Twitter feed @poetic_places. The developers are quite transparent about their process, so if you’re considering a similar undertaking, check out Points of Interest.
