Thanks for the welcome to the ADS-L.

Does anyone have an idea of where to find software to allow me

to print my own dialect atlas?

I need to be able to imput a map (of Louisiana, the Cajun

dialect area), specify geographic points investigated, and add marginalia

of my own--footnotes to the replies gathered in fieldwork, in a columnar


If anyone is familiar with a type of spreadsheet or other

available software, I'd love to hear of it.

--Cathy Bodin


there is a guy at the University of Munich in the Department of

Romance linguistics who as far as I can remember devised a full-scale

software package for the creation of a linguistics atlas, ready to

measure. He talekd about this at the Intl. Conference of

Dialectologists, Bamberg 1990; some volumes of that have been

published (ed. by Wolfgang Viereck) but I don`t know whether his

paper is out. If you want to write him, try Dr. Geisler, Institut

fuer Romanistik, Universitaet Muenchen, D-80799 Muenchen, Germany.

Good luck!
