WarSampo - Finnish World War II on the Semantic Web

WarSampo is a project and semantic portal that aims at this goal by publishing large heterogeneous sets of data about the WW2 in Finland as Linked Open Data (LOD). Application demonstrators are built that provide different perspectives to war history, for both historians and the public. The data covers the Winter War 1939-1940 against the Soviet attack, the Continuation War 1941-1944 where the occupied areas of the Winter War were temporarily regained, and the Lapland War 1944-1945, where the Finns pushed the German troops away from Lapland.
