Visiting Asturias

Asturias is my place! That is why I would like to leave here a map (it is public and you can add new places) I created to share with my friends when they come to visit this fantastic region. It is just include some of my favorite places but I will try to add new ones as soon as I have enough time,

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:

  • Noménclator statistics definitions. Graph IRI: Total: 68 triples. Example at:
