Abstract
This paper presents a series of projects where one of the main sources for toponomastic research in Finland, the corpora of 2.7 million place names in the Names Archive database of the Institute for the Languages of Finland, was digitized, enriched, and published as Linked Open Data using a data processing pipeline. Utilizing the Linked Data infrastructure and various external data sources, a modern full-stack web application, NameSampo, was created in collaboration between toponomastic researchers and computer scientists for searching, analyzing, and visualizing digital toponomastic data sources.
