AUTOTYP is not an single individual database project. Rather, it is a large-scale research program involving various thematically specific projects. In each project we develop a series of data and definition files linked together relationally. Together, these files contain information on many different typological variables.

The following projects are fully implemented and data collection is currently proceeding full steam (click for further information). Lines indicate the most important relationships between projects. (Most projects are interconnected via shared definition files anyway.)
