Alan Lomax Global Language Audio Collection

The Rosetta Project / The Long Now Foundation


View a fascinating KML which explores human languages.

This wonderfully presented KML documents a diverse collection of human languages within their geographic locale. Each placemark provides a description balloon with an embedded audio sample to hear, along with additional information and links. This KML is an excellent example of showing information not necessarily associated with a map in its geospatial context.
