summary Travel narratives published in electronic formats can be very important especially to the tourism community because of the great amount of knowledge that can be extracted. However, the low exploitation of these documents opens a new area of opportunity to the computing community. In this way, this article explores new ways to visualize travel narratives in a map in order to take advantage of experiences of individuals to recommend and describe travel places. Our approach is based on the use of a Geoparsing Web Service to extract geographic coordinates from travel narratives. Once geographic coordinates are extracted by using eXtensible Markup Language (XML) we draw the geo-positions and link the documents into a map image in order to visualize textual information.
