Mapping the Odyssey

Over the centuries there have been numerous attempts to map the fictional locations in Homer's Odyssey to real-world locations. It is no surprise then that some modern readers have decided to use the tools of modern interactive internet maps to attempt to map Odysseus' journey in Homer's epic tale.

While the locations used in such map depictions are purely a matter of conjecture the maps themselves are interesting attempts to use modern technologies to present this epic story in a new way.

Odysseus' Journey is an ESRI map of Homer's Odyssey. The map locates Odysseus' journey in locations on the Adriatic and Mediterranean seas. On the otherhand this MapTales map of The Odyssey places the locations around the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic Seas.
