Introduction and Goals

Verbrannte Orte (http://verbrannte-orte.de) is an online project by photographer Jan Schenck (http://picturex.net) in cooperation with augmented logic,
mapping places of the nazi book burnings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_book_burnings) in 1933.

One goal of this project is to make both geodata and contextual information available in various machine readable formats. For a start, information is available
in GeoRSS( XML ) and GeoJSON. A support for detailed information in RDF ( which will include information about source literature, documents and media) is planned for
late February/beginning of March 2014.
