AGRIS/CARIS Categorization Scheme

"The scope of AGRIS and CARIS coincides with the scope of FAO and covers agriculture and its related fields, including fisheries, forestry, food, veterinary science and rural development. The AGRIS/CARIS Categorization Scheme is the basic manual for the categorization of agricultural literature and agricultural research projects to be included respectively in AGRIS and CARIS, and gives a breakdown of the AGRIS/CARIS subject scope into a number of main fields which are further subdivided into specific subject categories. Each subject category is represented by a code."

Environmental Applications Reference Thesaurus

"The EARTh terminological content is derived form various multilingual and monolingual sources of controlled environmental terminology: GEMET - GEneral Multilingual Environmental Thesaurus; The UNEP-Infoterra EnVoc thesaurus; the Italian Earth Sciences Thesaurus; EnvDev, the Terminological Bulletin for the Rio de Janeiro Conference on Environment and Development, plus other documents concerning specific sectors.

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.

Integrative Levels Classification

"The Integrative Levels Classification (ILC) is a knowledge organization system featuring experimental innovations. Although drawing from the heritage of bibliographic classifications, it is different from most of them in allowing to represent any combination of concepts without the ties of traditional disciplines. Phenomena of the world are listed in the ILC schedule according to the natural sequence of integrative levels; each concept can then be freely combined with others by meaningful relationships (facets).

Nuovo Soggettario Thesaurus

"Il Nuovo soggettario, curato dalla BNCF, è lo strumento italiano di indicizzazione per soggetto. Dopo la conclusione di una prima fase sperimentale e la pubblicazione del prototipo (gennaio 2007), il sistema è sottoposto ad evoluzione e costanti verifiche anche per garantirne un buon grado di coerenza, manutenzione e colloquio con i propri utenti. Il Thesaurus multidisciplinare viene via via incrementato tramite aggiornamenti semestrali e grazie alla partecipazione di altre istituzioni.

"Nuovo soggettario, edited by the National Central Library of Florence (Biblioteca nazionale centrale di Firenze), is a subject indexing tool for various types of information resources. It has been developed in compliance with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) recommendations and other international standards in the field of subject indexing.

Classification of Forest Products

"This classification is designed to cover the wood and wood-based products for which FAO and ECE collect statistics on a regular basis. Included is wood taken from forests or from trees outside the forest, bark and cork; charcoal; wood and wood-based materials resulting from the first processing of the wood available from forest operations (including sawnwood, railway sleepers, veneer sheets, wood pulp and wood residues); and materials resulting from further processing of some of these materials (e.g. wood-base panels, paper and paperboard); waste paper and recoverable wood products.

AGROVOC

"AGROVOC is a controlled vocabulary covering all areas of interest of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, including food, nutrition, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, environment etc. It is published by FAO and edited by a community of experts.
