Thesaurus Onroerend Erfgoed Soorten

"Een thesaurus is een, meestal hiërarchische, woordenlijst die wordt gebruikt om terminologie te standaardiseren. Onze thesauri worden gebruikt om informatie te helpen indexeren en terugvinden in onze databanken. (...) We stellen onze thesauri samen met een bijzondere aandacht voor onze lokale Vlaamse situatie, zonder internationale thesauri zoals de Art & Architecture Thesaurus en de thesauri van Historic England uit het oog te verliezen."
