文学帝国地图由信息科学家A. Walsh,研究生Devin Becker, Bradford Demarest, Jonathan Tweedy, Theodora Michaelidou和图形设计师Laura Pence制作。地图基于维多利亚时代诗人Robert Browning 和Algernon Charles Swinburne的小样本诗歌。如地图所示,文学作品通常都有可辨认的时间和空间特性。如很多维多利亚时代的人被古希腊和中世纪欧洲所吸引,并且维多利亚时代的作家提供了对古代和中世纪世界的多维展示。在任一时代的所有作品中,或者在特定作者或者内容集合中,有多少具有古代、中世纪、圣经的或者现代的背景?数据能回答这些问题并且触发对于文学历史的新见解。此地图展示了跨越时间和空间的文学环境的分布,以及共享共同环境的作品网络。可能会产生一些有趣的见解,如有人发现意大利、希腊和圣地的诗歌集合和时间轴上的间隙以及诗歌的集中度。更多动态地图以及时间轴信息,可访问http://purl.oclc.org/swinburnearchive/acsvis.
