mapping languages

wow a topic that combines my two favorite things, languages and maps. the Modern Language Association has produced an arcIMS driven site that allows interactive mapping of language down to the county/zip code level (from census data). you can compare one language against another, map language use by political boundary (GIS-speak for state, county, zip code), etc. oh its so cool, its making me giddy ;-) it's not "public" until wednesday and it looks like its getting hammered right now. in any case, if you live in the US, it's certainly worth a peek.

off the CNN website.
