I just noticed two products from Global Mapping International: the
Seamless Digital Chart of the World Base Map
(<http://www.gmi.org/wlms/dcw.htm>), and the World Language Mapping
System (<http://www.gmi.org/wlms/index.htm>). If I understand correctly,
the later is essentially a GIS form of the Ethnologue data, and is used
to produce the maps in the printed edition of The Ethnologue. I am
impressed by the ability to create maps such as those at
I am wondering if anybody has experience with those products, and what
kind of setup you use.
The kind of application I am interested in is to take data like "Numbers
from 1 to 10 in Over 5000 Languages"
<http://www.zompist.com/numbers.shtml> or CLDR data and put them on
maps. I am interested by both static maps and interactive maps (most
likely using Flash technology).
