Language and Location - A Map Annotation Project
LL-MAP is a project designed to integrate language information with data from the physical and social sciences by means of a Geographical Information System (GIS). An online geodata collection facility will allow scholars to create maps based on their own observation and to emend the information on language distribution drawn from public sources.
The interface will also be integrated with the existing LINGUIST List databases and with the Multitree project. LL-MAP is a three-year joint project of Eastern Michigan University, Stockholm University, and Institute for Geospatial Research and Education (IGRE), in collaboration with five other projects and archives. The LL-MAP project is funded by a National Science Foundation grant (HSD 0527512).
