Silent maps

In Romance Studies, each individual map in a linguistic atlas is traditionally analyzed using typologies of the raw data from the map and the results thereof incorporated into “silent maps”: cf. Karl Jaberg, in: Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 30 (1906) 512.


These silent maps usually contain the network of surveying points for the linguistic atlas in question as well as additional topographical and political information and are available in large quantities to linguistic geographers.


Here, you’ll find the network used in the ALD-II in polygon as well as original/true-to-life form, with both networks with the heading ALD and ALD-II available.
