International Classification of the Figurative Elements of Marks

"The Vienna Classification constitutes a hierarchical system that proceeds from the general to the particular, classifying the figurative elements of marks into categories, divisions and sections, on the basis of their shape. This publication contains the seventh edition of the Classification, which comprises a total of: 29 categories, 145 divisions, 806 main sections, and 903 auxiliary sections.
The examples of figurative elements relating to certain divisions, are included for information purposes only, and are therefore not an integral part of the Classification."

International Classification for Seasonal Snow on the Ground

"Since 1990 our collective knowledge of snow and the techniques we use to observe its characteristics have evolved. Thus, in 2003, the current classification (Colbeck et al., 1990) needed an update, but the users of the 1990 classification felt that corrections and additions should be kept to a minimum. Following the spirit of the previous editions, the Working Group on Snow Classification took care to again provide a concise document usable by user groups of quite different specialties: snow scientists, practitioners, scientists from other fields, as well as interested lay persons.

Classification of Instructional Programs

"The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 1980, with revisions occurring in 1985, 1990, and 2000. The 2000 edition (CIP-2000) is the third revision of the taxonomy and presents an updated taxonomy of instructional program classifications and descriptions."

International Classification of Childhood Cancer

"The classification of childhood cancer is based on tumor morphology and primary site with an emphasis on morphology rather than the emphasis on primary site for adults.
In the ICCC, there are certain combinations of histologies, behaviors, and/or sites that are not considered in the schema, and for these we have added a group for unknown ICCC, which includes in situ tumors and some malignant tumors. Therefore, when we produce all sites based on ICCC, we will exclude these cases."

International Classification of Sleep Disorders

"The International Classification of Sleep Disorders is the authoritative text for clinicians to access information about sleep disorders, criteria for diagnosis and other relevant information imperative for the treatment of their patients. This second edition provides the most current nosology of sleep medicine and is designed in a more user-friendly format. It is an invaluable resource for all clinicians. Disorders are grouped into eight categories."
