Finnish Online Dialect Atlas

Finnish Online Dialect Atlas

 

The Finnish Online Dialect Atlas consists of a data set representing a number of hard-copy maps (from Kettunen 1940), each of which shows the distribution of one or more dialect features across the region of current-day Finland and some areas beyond. The data conversion is largely complete, but still has some editorial ambiguities because the original was unclear to us.

We have been able to recast the Finnish data set in the form of RODA interpretive maps. The result is that we can use a slightly modified version of the RODA software to view the Finnish interpreted data.
