Klassifikation der Böden der Schweiz

"Die Bodenklassifikation hat zum Ziel, Böden aufgrund ihrer vielfältigen Profil- und Standortmerkmale systematisch zu klassieren. Damit ist es möglich, untersuchte Böden zu identifizieren, zu vergleichen, zu unterscheiden und zu beurteilen. Die Klassifikation hat ihre Bedeutung vor allem innerhalb der Bodenkunde selbst, denn pedologische Forschungen und Versuche sollten stets an gut definierten und klassierten Böden erfolgen, damit Resultate vergleichbar sind. Wichtig ist die Bodenklassifikation ferner bei vielen interdisziplinären Forschungen sowie in der Lehre."

"The classification of the soil has the objective of systematically classifying soils due to their diverse profile and location characteristics, making it possible to identify, compare, distinguish and assess subsoil soils.The classification has its importance mainly within the soil customer himself, Since pedological research and experiments should always be carried out on well-defined and classified soils, so that results can be compared. The classification of soil is also important in many interdisciplinary researches as well as in teaching. "

International Glossary of Hydrology

"Agreed terminology is essential for communication, shared research and joint action, especially at the international level. This is why a glossary of hydrology is so important – to stimulate further progress in water sciences and to facilitate the translation of technical and scientific publications that may be of interest to a wider audience but are available only in one language."

Plan de Classification des Documents d’Hydro-Québec

"Le plan de classification des documents d’Hydro-Québec est une structure hiérarchique et logique constituée de rubriques dans lesquelles sont présentées les activités de l’entreprise et qui permet la classification, le classement et le repérage des documents produits ou reçus par l’entreprise, quel qu’en soit le support. Chaque rubrique comporte un code, un intitulé et un descriptif."

"Hydro-Québec's classification classification plan is a hierarchical and logical structure made up of headings in which the company's activities are presented and which allows the classification, classification and identification of documents produced or received by the company, Company, whatever the medium. Each heading contains a code, a title and a description.

Proposed International Standard Nomenclature for Fields of Science and Technology

"The Proposed international standard nomenclature for fields of science and technology was proposed in 1973 and 1974 by the Division of Science Policy and Statistics for Science and Technology of UNESCO and adopted by the Scientific Advisory Committee. This is a classification system widely used in knowledge management of research projects and dissertations. Categories are divided into three hierarchical levels: Fields: Refering to general sections. Encoded with two digits and comprises several disciplines. Disciplines: Provide an overview of specialty groups in Science and Technology.

United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction Terminology

"The UNISDR Terminology aims to promote a common understanding and usage of disaster risk reduction concepts and to assist the disaster risk reduction efforts of authorities, practitioners and the public. The previous version 'Terminology: Basic terms of disaster risk reduction' was published in 'Living with risk: a global review of disaster risk reduction initiatives' in 2004.

Evidence Codes Ontology

"The Evidence Ontology (ECO) describes types of scientific evidence within the realm of biological research that can arise from laboratory experiments, computational methods, manual literature curation, and other means. Researchers can use these types of evidence to support assertions about things (such as scientific conclusions, gene annotations, or other statements of fact) that result from scientific research.

Plant Ontology

"Plant Ontology project is a major international bioinformatics effort on standardizing the nomenclature, definitions, synonyms and relations of various terms/keywords/vocabularies that describe anatomical entities as well as the growth and developmental stages of plants. This collaborative project involves team members and projects with expertise on plant functional and comparative genomics, genetics, systematics, anatomy, developmental biology, computational biology, ontology development, etc.
