This is a silly question, I'm sure but I have been looking for maps of languages something that would serve as a comprehensive overview of an individual language and all its parts. Do such things exist? Where could I find them if so?

At the LINGUIST List we have a project called LL Map that we're very proud of. I hope it can provide some of what you're looking for.

You can also use our service GeoLing to find languages ( However,GeoLing doesn't provide the outlines of languages as you requested.
