Mapping Fabula and Sjužet in “Wandering Rocks” geocoding

Read the README at GitHub. Mapping Fabula and Sjužet in “Wandering Rocks” as hosted by GitHub.

“Fabula and Sjužet in ‘Wandering Rocks’” is a data visualization of the events in the tenth episode of James Joyce’s Ulysses. It maps the events both by the fabula (historical spacetime) and sjužet (narrative spacetime) to show how both provide different points of entry into the episode.

The animation can be played both as the fabula, where events occur in chronological order, and as the sjužet, where events occur in narrative order.

The data are available to serve as a model for rebuilding the project with one’s own dataset.
