The present study explores the major accomplishments made thus far with special consideration of  the path of development linguistic map making has taken hitherto in Korea and Japan.

The  linguistic maps should be understood in their broader concept that shows the  various geographic  information related to linguistic branches within a particular geographic area as well as relevant trends  and aspects in linguistic branches on not only paper but also online screens and images.
