Terminology for National Address Information System

The National Land Survey of Finland (NLS) commissioned the Finnish Terminology Centre for a terminology project in the beginning of this year. The aim of the project is to provide concept descriptions for some 30 concepts related to addresses. The terms and concept descriptions will be given in Finnish and term equivalents in Swedish and English.

Subject field experts from the NLS, City of Helsinki, Posti, Digital and Population Data Services Agency and Ministry of the Environment will participate in the terminology work. The terminology work will be carried out by a terminologist of the Finnish Terminology Centre in close collaboration with subject field experts. The terminology will be ready in the end of September 2021.
