Diccionari de geografia física

"Aquest diccionari aplega més de dos mil termes pertanyents bàsicament a les àrees de la biogeografia, la ciència de sòl, la climatologia, la geomorfologia i la hidrologia. Cada article terminològic conté, a més de la denominació catalana, les equivalències en castellà, francès i anglès, la definició i, sovint, notes explicatives. Com a complement, hi trobareu una vintena de quadres que contenen més d'un miler de termes catalans.

"This dictionary includes more than two thousand words belonging primarily in the areas of biogeography, the science of soil, climate, geomorphology and hydrology. Each article terminology also contains the name Catalan, equivalences in Spanish, French and English definition and often explanatory notes. in addition, you will find a dozen boxes containing more than a thousand Catalan terms.

Systematik Geowissenschaften

"Die Systemstellen der geowissenschaftlichen Systematik (...) bestehen aus einer Kombination von Großbuchstaben (die die einzelnen Teildisziplinen Allgemeines, Geologie, Mineralogie, Paläontologie, Geophysik, Bodenkunde, Geographie, Archäologie, Biologie, Mathematik, Physik und Chemie bezeichnen) und Ziffern."

"The systematics of the geoscientific system (...) consist of a combination of uppercase letters (which denote the individual basic disciplines general, geology, mineralogy, paleontology, geophysics, geography, geography, archeology, biology, mathematics, physics and chemistry) and digits. "

Una taula dels temps geològics

"Aquesta obra és un recull de prop de mil termes, fruit acumulat de dos segles de desenvolupament científic. (...) La informació mínima que té cada terme del glossari és: entrada i categoria gramatical.
D'altra banda, hi ha termes que tenen informació addicional, com ara: - Definició. - Equivalències en anglès, espanyol, francès i alemany. - Sinònims. - Notes. - Termes relacionats."

"This work is a collection of about a thousand words, the result of two centuries of accumulated scientific development. (...) The minimum information that each glossary term is: input and speech.
Moreover, there are terms that have additional information, such as: - Definition. - equivalences in English, Spanish, French and German. - synonyms. - Notes. - Related Terms. "

Thesaurus Italiano di Scienze della Terra

"L’obiettivo di creare un Thesaurus italiano di scienze della Terra nasce dalla volontà di rendere giustizia alla complessità terminologica e documentaria del nostro prestigioso patrimonio nazionale, soffocato ancora in buona parte da strumenti di indicizzazione importati e quindi spesso impropri. Un tale obiettivo ha presentato al contempo una sfida ambiziosa e consapevole, poiché mezzi, risorse e professionalità, tutt’altro che scontati come quantità, hanno costituito battaglie intermedie da vincere per la concretizzazione del 'sogno'.

"The objective of creating an Italian thesaurus of earth sciences stems from the desire to do justice to terminology and documentary complexity of our prestigious national heritage, muffled still largely imported from indexing tools and therefore often improper. Such an objective presented at the same time an ambitious and conscious challenge, as it means, resources and expertise, as anything but discounted amount, formed intermediate battles to win for the 'dream realization'.

GeoRef Thesaurus

"The 11th edition of the GeoRef Thesaurus contains more than 30,800 controlled vocabulary terms and the complete GeoRef indexing structure. The Thesaurus is an indispensable tool for efficient searching of the GeoRef database."

Earth Observation Thesaurus

"The project aims at developing a controlled and structured terminology system related to GIS and remote sensing. The first phase corresponds to the identification of potential sources of terminology, the selection of proper terms, their extraction and the creation of a terminology database. Terms have been classified according to the EARTh upper structure. The semantic classification foresees the allocation of each term in a relation tree starting from the more general concept represented by the category. The result is a terminology system containing about 3.500 terms.

National Land Cover Data Classification Schemes

"NLCD 1992 was a success, and its success had a lot to do with building the momentum for NLCD 2001. NLCD 2001 improves upon NLCD 1992 in three important ways. Whereas NLCD 1992 was simply a land-cover data set, NLCD 2001 is a land-cover database comprised of three elements: land cover, impervious surface and canopy density. Second, NLCD 2001 used improved classification algorithms, which have resulted in data with more precise rendering of spatial boundaries between the 16 classes (an additional nine classes are available in coastal areas and another four classes in Alaska only).
