I am trying to add "Swedish" Glaciers they have sami names that I would like to add or understand if a name is sami. Any suggestion for sources

  • see task https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T236131 and list https://w.wiki/Rcw
    • I would suggest asking Lantmäteriet for lists of Sámi names. According to their website, however, stuff like this is a paid service (whereas the Norwegian Mapping Authority releases it freely under a CC license), and one might have to pay more if the data is to be used widely, but maybe they will be lenient for a good cause. -Jon Harald Søby
