How did they decide that the given real locations had anything to do with Odysseus's voyage?

There's quote a lot of discussion on this through history. See link below. I tend to agree with Eratosthenes that "You will find the scene of Odysseus's wanderings when you find the cobbler who sewed up the bag of winds."
 But I still like the mapping as a piece of imagination
