Z-Axis Mapping Tool

From the Canadian-based Modernist Versions Project, an initiative that promotes the analysis of literature through the development of new digital tools, comes Z-Axis, a mapping tool that enhances the critical study of setting in London-based novels. This innovative tool allows visitors to map out named locations, creating a three dimensional image that highlights frequently discussed sites. Visitors can explore maps created by the team, including Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway, E.M. Forster's Howard's End, and Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent. Alternatively, visitors can upload their own .txt files to generate new maps. In addition to the tool itself, readers will find two critical essays that utilize Z-Axis to analyze other works of modernist literature. Meanwhile, educators will want to check out the two lesson plans featured on the site. One facilitates exploration of Mrs. Dalloway; the other allows students to explore H.G. Well's The War of the Worlds, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series, and Virginia Woolf's "Street Hunting: a London Adventure."
