Visualization of Dialect Data

Presenters and Authors
  • E. Hinrichs
  • T. Zastrow

The field of dialectology relies on lexical knowledge in the form of pronunciation and lexical data. The present paper focuses on the recently developed approach of computational dialectometry, particularly on the scientific visualization techniques that have been developed within this approach. Existing visualization software packages are mature enough to automatically generate maps and other visualization formats in a matter of minutes. This provides the basis for a more in-depth analysis of the primary data. Elec-tronic archives offer the possibility of including scientific visualizations of the analytic results in conjunction with the primary data and the raw output of the analytic algorithms used. This in turn enables other researchers to replicate the results or to use the primary data for further analysis.
