Master & Commander on Google Maps
For the last four years The Patrick O'Brian Mapping Project has been accurately mapping the Aubrey–Maturin series of historical novels by Patrick O'Brian.
The novels tell the adventures of Captain Jack Aubrey of the Royal Navy and his ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin. You might be more aware of the characters from the movie Master and Commander, starring Russell Crowe, which was adapted from three of the novels.
The Patrick O'Brian Mapping Project recently reached a significant milestone in the project, having now mapped over half of the novels.This means that readers can now visualise on individual Google Maps Captain Jack's journeys in eleven of the novels
