Cadastre and Land Administration Thesaurus

Cadastre and Land Administration Thesaurus, shortly CaLAThe is a controlled vocabulary for the domain of cadastre and land administration. It is available at a dedicated web site: http://www.cadastralvocabulary.org, as well as through The Basic Register of Thesauri, Ontologies Classifications (BARTOC), the Definitions Server of the OGC, and from 2020 also linked with the LandVoc thesaurus. The initial 2011 version of CaLAThe was prepared based on terms and term relationships derived from DIS version of the ISO 19152:2012 Land Administration Domain Model (LADM). Moreover, it referred to existing thesauri, primarily the GEMET thesaurus, the AGROVOC thesaurus, and the STW Thesaurus for Economics. In the second version, terms rendering the dynamic or temporal aspects of the domain were added. Version 3 was supplemented with terms from the OGC Land and Infrastructure Conceptual Model Standard (LandInfra), and version 4 added code lists names and values from both standards. Version 5 started a multi-lingual itinerary by adding terms (SKOS: prefLabel) in Danish and Turkish, the native language of the authors. CaLAThe now comprises about 250 terms with a growing number of term definitions.
