Visualizing Text Locations Using GIS & Python
Convert Text Documents to Maps.
Have a collection of digitized books, music lyrics, letters, or articles, and want to visualize a map of all locations mentioned in the texts? Using Google Colaboratory Python environment, learn how to write and leverage Python code to:
1) automatically extract named locations from texts
2) obtain coordinates for these locations by geocoding against the Bing Maps API
3) Visualize these locations by overlaying on an interactive map
