GAP is a Google-funded Digital Humanities project that is exploring the possibilities for automatically identifying and visualizing place references in online corpora. The first phase of the project used the Edinburgh Geoparser and Pleiades gazetteer to geo-tag and identify place references in primary and secondary literature about antiquity from the Google books Corpus. The results are visualized and made available online using the GapVis interface: http://gap.alexandriaarchive.org/gapvis/index.html#index
