Education terms

"The A-Z of terms is the controlled vocabulary developed and maintained by the Department for Education. It was first developed in the 1980s and has been continually updated to reflect new topics and departmental responsibilities. It groups terms together so that when you search you can see the term that you are looking for in the context of other terms in the vocabulary - this helps you to browse for information. Terms are listed with all their relationships, plus a scope note (to help define a term and explain how it should be used) where necessary.

Product Types Ontology

"This service provides ca. 300,000 precise definitions for types of product or services that extend the schema.org and GoodRelations standards for e-commerce markup. You can use this ontology to describe any object for which a matching entry in the English Wikipedia exists. Thanks to the many links between the multiple language editions of Wikipedia, you can search for the best class in your favorite language, e.g. in the German or Italian Wikipedia, and then click on the English translation on the left-hand side to get to the matching page in the English Wikipedia."

Global Product Classification

"Um sicher zu stellen, das Produkte richtig und einheitlich klassifiziert werden, wird im GDSN die Global Product Classification verwendet.
