Streetscapes - Mozart, Marx and a Dictator by ZEIT ONLINE

Streets and squares are an archive of both language and history. We discovered some fascinating patterns in the distribution of the 450,000 street names in Germany. They tell the story of almost forgotten artists and historical events, they shed light on obsolete economic structures and trade routes, on dialects and on idioms imported from abroad. Additionally, we identified groups of streets with thematically linked terms like the names of poets or types of animals.
