Interface of feature visualisation from PHOIBLE and WALS

This app is a minimalistic yet practical interface which helps the visualisation of features from the PHOIBLE project and the World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS).

The app has two visualisation components. The first one is a world map which shows the feature distribution of languages. A bar chart is combined with the map to help observe feature counts. The second component is the network visualisation. It helps observe relationships between languages based on multiple features.

All the information from the projects as well as the data where it was taken from can be found in the following website links:
