International Classification for Seasonal Snow on the Ground

"Since 1990 our collective knowledge of snow and the techniques we use to observe its characteristics have evolved. Thus, in 2003, the current classification (Colbeck et al., 1990) needed an update, but the users of the 1990 classification felt that corrections and additions should be kept to a minimum. Following the spirit of the previous editions, the Working Group on Snow Classification took care to again provide a concise document usable by user groups of quite different specialties: snow scientists, practitioners, scientists from other fields, as well as interested lay persons.

Thésaurus Urbamet

"L'application permet la recherche et l'affichage de ces thèmes et la circulation à travers les différents tableaux. Régulièrement actualisé et profondément remanié en 2001, le thésaurus présente aujourd'hui 4250 descripteurs répartis en 24 tableaux. Les synonymes et les 'Voir aussi' facilitent la recherche. Chaque descripteur n'appartient qu'à un seul tableau sémantique et son acception découle de la place qui lui a été assignée dans cette organisation."

Thésaurus d'Architecture, d'Urbanisme et de l'Environnement

"Le Thésaurus AUE des termes d'architecture, d'urbanisme et d'environnement dont la première édition est parue en 1999, constitue un outil de travail utilisé aujourd'hui par l'ensemble des CAUE ainsi que par certains partenaires dans ces domaines. Fruit à l'origine de la collaboration des CAUE de l'Ain, de l'Oise, du Rhône et du Val-d'Oise, le Thésaurus AUE a fait l'objet de mises à jour régulières, de façon à permettre à cet outil de s'adapter à l'évolution du langage des domaines concernés. Voici donc la quatrième édition 2008, enrichie de plus de 150 termes.

"The CAB Thesaurus is the essential search tool for all users of the CAB ABSTRACTS™ and Global Health databases and related products. The CAB Thesaurus is not only an invaluable aid for database users but it has many potential uses by individuals and organizations indexing their own information resources for both internal use and on the Internet.

Ontology of Anatomical Entities

"The AEO is an ontology of anatomical structures that expands CARO, the Common Anatomy Reference Ontology, to about 160 classes using the is_a relationship; it thus provides a detailed type classification for tissues. The ~100 new classes were chosen for their use in categorizing the major vertebrate and invertebrate anatomy ontologies at a granularity adequate for tissues of a single cell type.
The AEO is intended to be useful in increasing the amount of knowledge in anatomy ontologies, facilitating annotation and enabling interoperability across anatomy ontologies.
