Data sets

V1

The data sets marked with V1 were selected and digitized by Yves Scherrer between 2009 and 2012. A total of 216 working maps were extracted from the Sprachatlas der deutschen Schweiz (SDS), the linguistic atlas of German-speaking Switzerland. The maps are grouped in the following subsets:

V2

The data sets marked with V2 originate from the Master's thesis by Sandra Kellerhals (University of Zurich). Thereby, the V1 data were completed, some additional SDS maps were digitized, and new material from the SADS project (Syntaktischer Atlas der deutschen Schweiz / Syntactic Atlas of German-speaking Switzerland) was added. This resulted in a total of 343 working maps:

The integration of SDS and SADS data required the use of a common inquiry point network. Instead of the 565 SDS inquiry points on Swiss territory, we only use 378 inquiry points here, for which SDS as well as SADS data are available.
