This work presents the adopted methodology and the realized tools for data visualization in the Linguistic Atlas Of Sicily (ALS) Project. The ALS Project has the purpose to discovery new trends and variables to track the linguistic evolution over time and space in Sicily. The project is focused on how linguistic variables are related to social and economic aspects of the evolution of population and vice-versa. The visualization tools are a relevant aspect of the project to support decisions and disseminate results. One of the major factors is the geographic dependence of data evolution. To this aim complex set of tools has been developed: some tools are stand-alone while others are collaborative and web-based. This work presents the interconnection between these tools. We explore the principal phases of the “GIScience” process with the purpose to obtain valid and useful results for the researchers involved in the project.
