Morphological atlas of Dutch dialects

This is cool, but I’m holding back till I’ve read Jan van Bakel’s study of Nuenen dialect. I used to have a one-man business selling used cultural goods throughout rural Holland and, having become accustomed to a very different bunch of dialects, I had the greatest of difficulty in understanding one of my earliest clients, a Nuenen shopkeeper. If I can work out now what the guy wanted then and do some business, then I’ll probably owe Prof van Bakel commission.
