In what way are you editing for the TV show jnb412?  I wish there were two maps... or color coding to separate books and show episodes ...  so that any discrepancies are clear. 

In any case, how do you handle instances where the "show" version uses locations to film but are meant to be representative of somewhere else?  [I don't have examples, other than Harry's house, just wondering. I much more into the books.]

One of my problems with the map (I've seen it previously) is the same problem I have with the wonderful "wiki" that others have created: no references to book/chapter in order to verify.  I know that I have spent way too many hours independently trying to nail down locations myself, and where my conclusions differ from someone else, it helps to know how they arrived at their conclusions.  This also goes to chronology issues in the wiki.

I found this map and I will add to it, I was hoping other would do the same since I have no idea where these locations are.

Feel free to make another map, maybe one for each season.     

I hope to have a collection so when I visit LA I can see everything.

There is a gal on Twitter (@lisabrewer18) who does an amazing job photographing the filming locations for each season.    Hoping she might add to this.

Well, I won't be doing that with the show sites, as I am not a "fan" of the shows to the degree that I am of the books. That's another topic.

In any case, yes, I too have been compiling notes from the books on locations and only a few months ago discovered that someone had started this map. My purpose is the same: planning for an eventual Bosh tour / pilgrimage / ha-whatever!

Initially, I was using internet photos and Google Maps to create slides of sites in books to show at our little core of Bosch lovers, and monthly sub-group, of our Mystery Book Club. It's a hoot, and Connelly's skills as a journalist carry over into his novels quite wonderfully.... you know, the use of real time and real sites.

I have mentioned elsewhere creating a book tour (two of them) for the Robert Parker - Spenser series a few years ago. That's local for me.  It has been my hope to go to LA with some friends and do the same, but we keep postponing for one reason or another.
