Dialect maps

There are some great dialect maps of English online.
* This was from the Harvard Dialect Survey in 2003; there are some odd ones.
* Though this visualization of the same data, from last year, is much cooler.
* The NYT had a personal dialect quiz based on this data.
* A updated project, running since 2007, is the Cambridge Online Survey of World Englishes.
