FTSE Environmental Markets Classification System

"The EMCS is a detailed and comprehensive structure for analysis, facilitating the comparison of companies across two levels; sector and subsector, and across national boundaries. The system defines environmental market companies and allocates each to the subsector whose definition most closely describes the nature of its business. There are currently seven Sectors and 29 Subsectors."

Thesaurus of Rock and Soil Mechanics Terms

"The thesaurus was originally compiled by J P Jenkins of the Rock Mechanics Information Service in 1976-1977. Since then it has been used and developed primarily for internal use. With the public availability of the Geomechanics Abstracts data base (GMA) on the Pergamon-InfoLine on-line system, the thesaurus is being published as an aid to users of GMA. The thesaurus derives in style principally from the Thesaurus of Engineering and Scientific Terms.


"Thema is intended for use by all parts of the book trade: unlike other book trade subject classifications, it aims to be globally applicable. And in contrast to various library classifications that are used internationally, it is tailored for commercial use within the trade. It is a flexible standard that allows each market to retain its unique cultural voice while still presenting a unified subject hierarchy that rationalises book classification.

Storyline Ontology

"The News Storyline Ontology is a generic model for describing and organising the stories news organisations tell. The ontology is intended to be flexible to support any given news or media publisher's approach to handling news stories. At the heart of the ontology, is the concept of Storyline. As a nuance of the English language the word 'story' has multiple meanings. In news organisations, a story can be an individual piece of content, such as an article or news report. It can also be the editorial view on events occurring in the world."
