There is a specific branch in the SC lexicography system: toponymy. The systems for the cataloguing of toponymy are fundamental to assign a strong identity to the territories of minority languages: the use of traditional toponymy is often the first step towards the recognition of an autonomous linguistic identity.
Smallcodes uses two types of applications for toponymy consultation, with a different approach, although they are easily interoperable and can be connected to each other.
In the first case, the maps are georeferenced and navigable at different zoom levels – satellite and/or cartographic, with the toponymy in the traditional language complete. Each toponym can be associated with an in-depth sheet, which opens at the click of the user, with additional information on the selected location.
The second mode is a geographical search portal, for large linguistic areas, for mountain communities and for municipalities, in which for each location information is provided about the attestations in written sources, tourist information and precise geographical coordinates.
