The Map of Aboriginal Australia was created by David Horton and is based on language data gathered by Aboriginal Studies Press, AIATSIS and Auslig/Sinclair, Knight, Merz, (1996). The map attempts to represent all language groups of the Indigenous people of Australia. However, it indicates only the general location of larger groupings of people, which may include smaller groups, such as clans, dialects or individual languages in a group. Boundaries are not intended to be exact and are not suitable for use in native title and other land claims.
A copy of the map can be purchased directly from Aboriginal Studies Press.
