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.

SnowTerm Thesaurus

"The project purpose is to develop and maintain a reference structured terminology in the domain of the cryosphere environment. The identification of the potential sources of terminology was carried out with the assistance of experts of the Arabba Avalanche Centre. The result consists of a certain number of lists of terms, usually contained in glossaries where they are supplied with one or more definitions and scarcely organised within a structure. In certain cases they are clustered in thematic areas. The terms of these lists were selected according to their pertinence and relevance.

The content includes a few name headings (personal and corporate), such as William Shakespeare, Jesus Christ, and Harvard University, and geographic headings that are added to LCSH as they are needed to establish subdivisions, provide a pattern for subdivision practice, or provide reference structure for other terms.

Tesauro de la Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara

"El 'Tesauro UAG' está basado en TEMATRES, que es un software libre para gestión de tesauros y en la estructura académica de la UAG, ya que se considera que son las áreas académicas y sus diversas facultades, escuelas, departamentos, grados académicos y materias las que solicitan y generan recursos de información con las que se desarrollan las colecciones de la Red de Bibliotecas, y que estas a su vez son la base para la enseñanza, el aprendizaje y la investigación en los diversos programas educativos de la UAG.

"The 'UAG Thesaurus' is based on TEMATRES, which is free software for thesaurus management and on the academic structure of the UAG, since it is considered to be the academic areas and their various faculties, schools, departments, academic degrees and Materials that request and generate information resources with which the collections of the Library Network are developed, and that these in turn are the basis for teaching, learning and research in the various educational programs of the UAG.

Defense Technical Information Center Thesaurus

After performing a Thesaurus search, a user can insert a Descriptor directly into the Technical Reports Guided Search page. 16463 terms, 8598 relations between terms, 2278 non-preferred terms."
