Nomenclátor Asturias 2010


This dataset created by the SADEI contains information about the populated places of my area, Asturias, including:

  • Codes to identify the type of a populated place: CC/PP/EE (C: code of first level division called “Concejo”, P: code of second level division called Parroquia Rural and EE: code of third level division the real place)
  • Name in Spanish and Asturian
  • Statistics about: altitude, distance, area, men, women and number of apartments (main and not main)

The structure of places is a hierarchy of 3 levels: Concejo (Municipality), Parroquia rural and others like: city, town, suburb, etc. Depending on the type of place some statistics are missing and their values are indicated with a value of “-1”. For instance “Concejo” and “Parroquia Rural” do not have “altitude and distance” and third level places do not have “area”.

Anyway all this information is publicly available via the WESO SPARQL endpoint (5 star linked data) and a Pubby frontend (more information about the dataset can be found in nomenclator-asturias dataset at . The structure of the data and definitions is the next one:

Example of query: “Give me all municipalities that have more women than men”

The definitions have been made using the vocabularies:

The whole dataset uses links to other datasets (126,127):

  • 1 link to NUTS
  • 78 links to DBPedia one per each “Concejo”
  • 78,859 links to DBPedia, one per each populated place and observation
  • 55,146 links to Reference Data Gov UK, one per each populated place and observation
  • 70,904 links to SDMX attributes (sex-m and sex-f)
  • 29 links to

In order to create all this data we have used different tools:
