GlottoVis
: Visualizing the Descriptive and Endangerment Status of Languages

Student thesis: Master

Abstract

This thesis discusses the design and implementation of an interactive visualization of the Glottolog database. This visualization is web-based and shows glyphs, representing languages, on an interactive map. An algorithm ensures that glyphs never overlap, but instead are merged when they would.
