Glossary of geographic data in statistics

Statistics Finland commissioned the Finnish Terminology Centre for a terminology project in autumn 2023. The aim of the project is to provide definitions in Finnish for some 30 concepts related to geographic data in statistics. In addition to Finnish, the terms will also be given in English. Terminology work is done to support the project GSGF in Finland – Integration of geospatial and statistical information in Finland, GSFI.

Subject field experts from Statistics Finland, National Land Survey of Finland and Finnish Environment Institute will participate in the terminology work. The work will be carried out by a terminologist of the Finnish Terminology Centre in close collaboration with subject field experts. The glossary will be ready in the end of May 2024.
