PROEL – Language Maps of the World in Spanish

The Promotora Española de Lingüística (PROEL) is an organization dedicated to promoting minority languages in Spain and the world at large. Registered with the Ministry of the Interior of Spain, PROEL works with the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) and SIL’s Mexican affiliate, the Instituto Lingüístico de Verano (ILV).

Among their projects is an impressive collection of maps, carefully linked by language family in Spanish. For the most part, English speakers should have no trouble navigating the maps. If you have trouble figuring out a name, try entering it in the Spanish Wikipedia, then looking for the corresponding English page from the language links at left.
