About Linked Logainm (Irish version follows below):

Linked Logainm is a collaborative project undertaken by the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI), the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Fiontar at Dublin City University, the National Library of Ireland and the Placenames Branch of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

The Linked Logainm project has created a new open dataset, which allows Irish place names to be linked across the world by cutting edge technologies developed in Ireland.

The new Linked Data version of the authoritative bilingual database of Irish place names logainm.ie, is an open resource to be widely used by web developers, computer scientists, researchers, the heritage community and librarians and archivists.

The Location LODer website is an interactive map where visitors can explore Irish place names, linked with historical context and maps, images and contemporary data from sources such as Europeana, Wikipedia, the Irish Historic Towns Atlas and the National Library of Ireland.

Tá tacar nua sonraí oscailte curtha ar fáil ag tionscadal Linked Logainm a chumasaíonn nascadh logainmneacha Éireannacha ar fud fad an domhain trí bhíthin teicneolaíochtaí ceannródaíocha a forbraíodh in Éirinn.

Acmhainn oscailte is ea an leagan sonraí nasctha den bhunachar sonraí dátheangach, údarásach de logainmneacha na hÉireann, logainm.ie, agus táthar ag súil leis go n-úsáidfidh forbróirí Gréasáin, eolaithe ríomhaireachta, taighdeoirí, an pobal oidhreachta, leabharlannaithe agus cartlannaithe go forleathan é amach anseo.

Is léarscáil idirghníomhach é an suíomh Gréasáin Location LODer ar ar féidir le cuairteoirí logainmneacha Éireannacha a fhiosrú agus iad nasctha lena gcomhthéacs stairiúil, le léarscáileanna, le híomhánna agus le sonraí comhaimseartha ó fhoinsí ar nós: Europeana, Vicipéid, Irish Historic Towns Atlas agus Leabharlann Náisiúnta na hÉireann.
