Thesaurus Onroerend Erfgoed Materialen

"Een thesaurus is een, meestal hiƫrarchische, 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."

"A thesaurus is a mostly hierarchical list of words used to standardize terminology. Our thesauri are used to index and find information in our databases. (...) We construct our thesauri with special attention to our local Flemish situation, but without losing sight of international thesauri such as the Art & Architecture Thesaurus and the thesauri of Historic England."

PCA Cement and Concrete Thesaurus

"The PCA Cement and Concrete Thesaurus, a list of accepted terminology for all aspects of cement and concrete, can now be accessed online. The Thesaurus was first compiled by PCA staff in the 1960s, and revised in 1982. With the introduction of computerized library software in the early 1990s, it became possible to reexamine and update the Thesaurus more efficiently, allowing the addition of hundreds of new terms and other changes as new materials have been cataloged. A thesaurus has a very practical purpose.

FISH Building Materials Thesaurus

"Construction materials for monuments relating to the built and buried heritage. English Heritage takes a leading role in setting standards for recording the built and buried heritage. By setting standards that can be adopted by everyone, we can make sure that all records are consistent. In other words, if everyone uses the same words to describe the same monument, archaeological object, building material, etc, then anyone using this common language can easily index, retrieve and understand these records.
