Baltimore was an American city, situated in the state of Maryland, proximate to both Bethesda and Washington DC. (PROSE: Blue Box)

It was Peri Brown's home town, (PROSE: Graham Dilley Saves the World) and the location of a Cyberman invasion in September 1984 which was thwarted by the Sixth Doctor. (AUDIO: The Reaping)

It was also Edgar Allan Poe's home town. The First Doctor, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright once encountered Poe there, near the end of his life, (PROSE: The True and Indisputable Facts in the Matter of the Ram's Skull) as did the Seventh Doctor and Ace (PROSE: The Algebra of Ice) and the Eighth Doctor. (AUDIO: Nevermore)

The Institute of Space Studies, a research organisation which UNIT consulted on extraterrestrial phenomena, was headquartered there. (TV: Spearhead from Space)

Some of its inhabitants, aside from Peri, were her mother Janine Foster, her late father Paul Brown, Anthony, Kathy and Nathaniel Chambers, Daniel Woods, Lt Doyle, and Natalie Hamilton. (AUDIO: The Reaping)

The city was in ruins for many years after the 22nd century Dalek invasion. (AUDIO: Nekromanteia)

Though it's possible that a real world location doesn't exist in the same geographic space in the Doctor Who universe, such cases are few and far between. Thus, the map at right is probably a good indicator of the DWU location of Baltimore.
