Infinite Jest on Google Maps
Infinite Atlas is a Google Map of locations that appear in David Foster Wallace’s novel Infinite Jest.
The map can be searched to find locations connected to different characters and plot-lines in the novel. Clicking on a map marker opens an information window with an overview of the location's place in the story, the page on which it first appears, additional commentary, a link to the most relevant Wikipedia article, plus a list of characters, stories and related locations.
Users of the map are able to upload photographs of locations that are displayed on the map.
