A tree map of languages
The tree of languages is a visual map that brings together all the Indo-European languages (extinct and current) relating them to their origin.
If I have been conceived as an interactive visualization, by moving the cursor over any language, you can see the geographical region in which the language is spoken or spoken, as well as other interesting information about the same date of birth and extinction Number of speakers, language of language, etc).
All those that are of Indo-European origin are presented, arranging their origin at the base of the tree, which then grows and bifurcates according to the divisions suffered by the languages and which led to the appearance of new ones. The languages still existing are represented by the use of green circles with a small gradient, causing the sensation of small beats in the tree structure, simulating the small beats of the still alive languages.
At the aesthetic level, the result is pleasant and at the level of the study one can visualize which languages come from others, as well as on the basis of which languages there are more dialects. Finally, if the tree were collated with a geographical map, one could draw philological conclusions based on the territory itself.
