Languages coded for phylogenetics

I am starting a series of posts on map data from the Pama-Nyungan project. To begin, here is a map showing the languages for which I have coded wordlists suitable for phylogenetic analysis. Note that for some reason, viewing the page in Chrome on OSX results in a jquery error. It can be viewed in Firefox, or on Chrome on a PC.

The points are coded by how much data are available. The least well attested languages have white points; the middling ones are marked by plain red, while the languages with the most complete datasets have red markers with a square inside.

Some of the points appear to be at sea. This is an irritating result of how google earth fails to account for zoom correctly; the points are close to the close but not actually under water.
