The Finnish Civil War as Linked Data

Ilkka Jokipii (University of Helsinki)
Heikki Rantala (Aalto University)

An updated and modernized version of the database of the Finnish war victims 1914–1922 was published in November 2019 along with a portal of tools called WarVictimSampo 1914–1922 (https://sotasurmat. The updated database includes more than 1500 new war victims (mostly related to the Finnish Civil War) and the new tools can be used to easily search and analyze the data in new ways for both research and education purposes. We talk about the conversion of the old database to RDF-form, the process of adding new victims to the data and about the possibilities that the new tools offer to researchers.
