"Fartygstypslistan innehåller termer som är användbara när ett fartyg, en avbildning av ett fartyg eller föremål kopplade till ett fartyg ska registreras. Datasetet Fartygstyper är tänkt att användas tillsammans med datasetet Namngivna fartygstyper och datasetet Serietillverkade fartyg. Det maritima kulturarvet är en angelägenhet för många. Vi är därför åtta maritima museer som samarbetar kring gemensamma auktoriteter och vokabulär för att kunna beskriva det maritima kulturarvet på ett enhetligt sätt.

"The Ship Type List contains terms that are useful when registering a vessel, a map of a vessel or item attached to a vessel. The Data Type Ship Types are intended to be used with the Data Set Named Ship Types and the Data Set Series Manufactured Ships. The maritime heritage is a concern for many. We are therefore eight maritime museums that collaborate on common authorities and vocabulary in order to be able to describe the maritime heritage in a unified way.

DTNSRDC Library Subject Thesaurus

"The DTNSRDC Library Subject Thesaurus, which exists both as a printed document and as an on-line computer file, supports the indexing and retrieval functions of the library's automated storage and retrieval system. The hierarchical structure of the vocabulary permits generic retrieval. For example, a search on NAVAL VESSELS will retrieve documents that had been indexed under all naval ship types. Several 'switching' relationships provide an automatic cross-referencing capability."

SFI Coding and Classification System for Ship Information

"The SFI Group System is the most widely-used classification system for maritime and offshore industries worldwide. The SFI Group System ties together all vessel management functions, such as operations, purchasing, accounting, maintenance, quality, etc. The SFI Code is an international classification standard providing a highly functional division of technical and financial information."

FISH Maritime Craft Types Thesaurus

"Craft types which survive as wrecks for the RCHME's maritime record and can be used to describe types of ship. 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.
