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
