Umwelt-Klassifikation

"Die Umwelt-Klassifikation dient der inhaltlichen Erschließung von Objekten (Literatur, F&E-Vorhaben/ -beschreibungen, Rechtsvorschriften, …) im interdisziplinären Themenbereich 'Umwelt'. Sie ermöglicht deren Zuordnung zu bestimmten Umweltthemen und erleichtert damit ein treffsicheres aber gleichzeitig umfassendes (Wieder-) Auffinden. Diese Zuordnung erfolgt in der Regel als Metainformation in Verzeichnissen über den Ablageort der Objekte (z. B. Datenbanken, Bibliothekskataloge).

General Multilingual Environmental Thesaurus

"The basic idea for the development of GEMET was to use the best of the presently available excellent multilingual thesauri, in order to save time, energy and funds. GEMET was conceived as a 'general' thesaurus, aimed to define a common general language, a core of general terminology for the environment. Specific thesauri and descriptor systems (e.g. on Nature Conservation, on Wastes, on Energy, etc.) have been excluded from the first step of development of the thesaurus and have been taken into account only for their structure and upper level terminology.
