Abstract

Ancient maps are an historical and cultural heritage widely recognized as a very important source of information, but exploiting such maps is complicated. In this project, we consider the Linguistic Atlas of France (ALF), built between 1902 and 1910. This cartographical heritage produces firstrate data for dialectological researches. In this paper, we focus on the separation of the content in layers for facilitating the extraction, the analysis, the visualization and the diffusion of the data contained in these ancient linguistic atlases.
