This is very interesting.  It is great to see that the original purpose was for instructional support.

Place of publication was also examined by the Atlas of Early Printing, however, I do not believe that they used catalog data, per se, but content from the Incunabula Short Title Catalog.  (Someone please correct me if I am wrong on that).

 If you know of prior work looking at harvesting and visualizing placial data from catalog records, I would like to know.  Ideas?  Suggestions?

The Mapping Colonial Americas Publishing Project by Jim Egan and Jean Bauer is using catalog data from the American Antiquarian Society, John Carter Brown Library, and John Hay Library to track printing in colonial North America.
