Dublin Core Collection Description Frequency Vocabulary

"The Collection Description Frequency Vocabulary provides a set of terms that can be used as values of the dcterms:accrualPeriodicity property in descriptions of collections. It has been developed in association with the Dublin Core Collections Application Profile (DC Collections AP) but this vocabulary is independent of that profile and the terms defined here may be referenced in other metadata descriptions and used as the values of other properties."

Virtual International Authority File

"The Virtual International Authority File (VIAF) is an international service designed to provide convenient access to the world's major name authority files. Its creators envision the VIAF as a building block for the Semantic Web to enable switching of the displayed form of names for persons to the preferred language and script of the Web user. VIAF began as a joint project with the Library of Congress (LC), the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB), the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BNF) and OCLC.

Spatial Synoptic Classification

"The SSC is based solely on surface based observations at an individual station. Four-times daily observations of temperature, dew point, wind, pressure, and cloud cover are incorporated into the model. It does not take upper-level conditions into account, and does not concern itself with the origin of the air above a station, though there are obvious correlations. Hence, the SSC is most properly called a weather type classification and not an air mass classification system.
