Note: The greatest barrier to interoperation of language resources is the predominant culture within linguistics of individual researchers using idiosyncratic means to produce published results. In considering digital support for linguistics, it is easy to focus on stand-alone tools that will help linguists to keep doing their work of language documentation and description. But this is only the tip of the iceberg.

Ljuba Veselinova . 2007. Issue Statement . URL

Note: In the statement below I focus on the output of commonly used map servers and how it challenges interoperability. Laurini (1998) makes a distinction between two kinds of interoperability: (i) for a program, data interoperability means the ability to utilize a range of data formats. (ii) for a dataset, program interoperability means that it can be used by different types of programs and subsequently for a variety of purposes. In the discussion below I concentrate on the second aspect.
