Google Ancient Places (GAP) "A Web application called Google Ancient Places (GAP) allows users to choose a classical text or book from the time period 500BC - 500AD and then search for references to ancient places within it, presenting the results in a user-friendly interface. GAP uses specialized software to identify where and how often places are mentioned within a text, displaying references to the locations and plotting results on a map using an independent digital gazetteer."
