Bh\=a$\unicode{x1E63}$\=acitra: Visualising the dialect geography of South Asia

  title={Bh\=a\$\unicode\{x1E63\}\$\=acitra: Visualising the dialect geography of South Asia},
  author={Aryaman Arora and Adam Farris and R Gopalakrishnan and Samopriya Basu},
We present Bhās.ācitra, 1 a dialect mapping system for South Asia built on a database of linguistic studies of languages of the region annotated for topic and location data. We analyse language coverage and look towards applications to typology by visualising example datasets. The application is not only meant to be useful for feature mapping, but also serves as a new kind of interactive bibliography for linguists of South Asian languages.
