Thesaurus Onroerend Erfgoed

"Aan de databank Inventaris Onroerend Erfgoed zijn meerdere thesauri gekoppeld.

De thesaurus van de typologie
Het erfgoed in deze inventaris is voornamelijk getypologeerd volgens haar functie. De typologische termen karakteriseren dus het bouwprogramma: is het gebouw ontworpen om dienst te doen als woning, als school, enz.
Het gaat dus niet om een vormelijke typologie. Zo wordt er in de thesaurus wel een onderscheid gemaakt tussen katholieke en orthodoxe kerken (verschil in functie), maar niet tussen hallenkerken en basilicale kerken (verschil in vorm).

"There are several thesauri linked to the database Real Estate Heritage.

The typology thesaurus
The heritage in this inventory is predominantly typified according to its function. The typological terms thus characterize the construction program: is the building designed to serve as a home, as a school, etc.
It is not a formal typology. For example, a distinction is made between the catholic and orthodox churches (difference in function), but not between hall churches and basil churches (difference in form).

Cairo Gazetteer

"Le référentiel Cairo Gazetteer est un outil pour l’identification et l’indexation des fonds documentaires relatifs aux monuments du Caire, qui soulèvent des difficultés de traitement en raison des multiples variantes issues de la translittération, en caractères latins, des toponymes arabes. Sous la forme d’une table de concordance qui recense les variantes orthographiques des noms des monuments, ce référentiel trilingue (français, arabe, anglais), au format SKOS, permet d’identifier, de décrire et de localiser les 600 édifices classés du Caire."

"The Cairo Gazetteer is a tool for the identification and indexing of documentary collections relating to Cairo's monuments, which raise difficulties of treatment because of the many variants resulting from the transliteration into Latin characters of Arabic toponyms. The form of a concordance table which lists the orthographic variants of the names of the monuments, this trilingual reference frame (French, Arabic, English), in SKOS format, identifies, describes and locates the 600 classified buildings in Cairo. "
