Bodin" Subject: Re: need for software To: Multiple recipients of list ADS-L Folks, 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 style. If anyone is familiar with a type of spreadsheet or other available software, I'd love to hear of it. --Cathy Bodin Cathy, 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!
