The UPSID database, put together by Ian Maddieson and colleagues at UCLA, is a valuable material for Phonetics research and teaching. Unfortunately, its current computer implementation is oversimplified, preventing a wide access by the Phonetics community and limiting the ways in which it can be exploited. In this paper we present an on-going project called Web-UPSID, consisting of a simple but powerful, Internet-accessible interface to the data, intended to address the issues above.
