This map (Daan and Blok, 1969) uniquely presents both production and perception of Dutch dialects, using data collected in 1939. Like other dialect maps, it displays the different dialects produced, shown by area borders and differing labels, but it also uses the colour spectrum as a tool to represent the perceptions of local speakers. The colours for each area were intuitively selected to represent how similar local speakers thought dialects were in respect to each other; if different areas are similar in colour, this shows that speakers thought the dialects spoken in these areas were similar. The dutch labels for each dialect area can be checked on as a separate layer on this map.
