Lit Long: Edinburgh
  Lit Long: Edinburgh is a very large database of place-name mentions in around 550 books that use Edinburgh as a setting. We have extracted the text surrounding each mention and included that in our database. The data has then been mapped onto the city via the place-name mentions, and can be explored through a mobile app and two online visualisations. You can also search the database directly through the discovery interface. In all of these interactions, you can walk your own path through the resonant locations of literary Edinburgh.
