The map shows a network of fictive itineraries travelled in some of keytexts in the ROMCAR corpus. I have annotated and commented these itineraries from the texts to illustrate and compare the motif of travelling in these works. While lines represent travel routes in the texts, I have also included other spatial relations like like comparisons between places, which are marked with dotted line. Circles in the individual texts represent entities mentioned in these works, which have been recognised algorithmically and linked with DBpedia using DBpedia Spotlight named-entity linking.

The map has been produced during the Romantic Cartographies project by Asko Nivala.
