Linked Events

Linked Events

Linked Events provides categorized data on events and places for the City of Helsinki. It serves as the common event database for all Helsinki city divisions and the web services.

In addition to events submitted through the event submission UI, the API imports all event data from the Helsinki Marketing, the City of Helsinki Cultural Venues and the Helmet metropolitan area public libraries. Data is also posted via REST methods, as evident in events included from the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and Helsinki City Museum.

The location information is linked to the City of Helsinki registry of service units which contains e.g.  accessibility information for the venues. Events are categorized with YSO-concepts.
