Europeana Food and Drink Classification

"The Europeana Food and Drink Classification scheme (EFD classification) is a multi-dimensional scheme for discovering and classifying Cultural Heritage Objects (CHO) related to Food and Drink (FD). To support the broadest possible range of re-use models, we are building upon existing terminologies to develop and apply a multilingual taxonomy for FD collections which will be used to tag, discover and aggregate relevant material by theme."

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."
