Abstract: Generating a place-name database is a difficult task. This communication describes the process used to generate a database for toponimics in Andalusia. The source has been an ARC/INFO GIS cartographic data model with 2,745 cartographic sheets at a 1:10,000 scale. We transformed this information into a place-names database with a few macros and a large number of non-automated processes. Furthermore, the Geographic Information Systems helped us to revise errors and in the final design of the geodatabase. The result is a geodatabase with more than 190,000 geo-referenced entries. These entries are going to be the core of the Andalusian Geographic Nomenclature – the next new ICA project.
