Language Archives Data Visualisation

The Open Language Archives Community is an international partnership of institutions and individuals who are creating a worldwide virtual library of language resources by: (i) developing consensus on best current practice for the digital archiving of language resources, and (ii) developing a network of inter-operating repositories and services for housing and accessing such resources.

This project was a first attempt at answering the question: Can we simplify the discovery of those languages that do not have many resources?

  • Support for various colour schemes.
