An interactive map of the Odyssey that’s easier to follow than NYC’s or London’s subway maps

ODDESSY MAP

ESRI | Fair Use

Follow the footsteps of Ulysses across the Mediterranean with a few clicks.

After spending ten years waging war, Ulysses finally embarked on his return to Ithaca. A trip that should have lasted only a few weeks, traveling across the Aegean, the Mediterranean and the Ionian Sea until he reached the west coast of Greece, however, ended up being, strictly speaking, an odyssey. We all know the story. Kind of.

Thanks to this map, published by ESRI, following Ulysses’ convoluted journey trying to get back home is a bit easier (although it lacks the aesthetic pleasure of reading Homer, sure).

You can visit the map here. It’s quite fun indeed.
