Glossary of data structures in environmental protection

The Ministry of the Environment commissioned the Finnish Terminology Centre for a terminology project in December 2023. The aim of the project is to support coherent processing of data related to environmental protection and to facilitate electronic services and communication. The glossary will contain some 60 concepts. The terms and concept descriptions will be given in Finnish and term equivalents in Swedish and English.

The ministry has collected the concepts that need to be defined, and it is the Terminology Centre’s task to compile systematic definitions and notes as well as concept diagrams for the concepts. The terminology work will be carried out by terminologists of the Terminology Centre in close collaboration with subject field experts chosen by the ministry.
