The Endonym Map

The Endonym Map is a neat little Leaflet powered map which labels the countries of the world in their official or national languages.

The map includes four informative map insets in each corner of the map. These inset maps highlight the countries of the world grouped by the four most common languages, English, French, Arabic and Spanish.

The map itself was obviously designed as a static map and you can purchase a poster of the printed map. The interactive version of the map uses the Leaflet.Zoomify JavaScript library, which can create base map tiles for the Leaflet mapping platform from Zoomify images.
