Ancestry Ontology

"The Ancestry Ontology (Ancestro) provides a systematic description of the ancestry concepts used in the NHGRI-EBI Catalog of published genome-wide association studies. It includes a list of countries, regions and major areas (essentially continents), as well as a fairly exhaustive list of country- or region-specific ancestral groups, uncategorised ancestral groups and population isolates."

Tesauro Sistema Archivistico Nazionale

"Il Tesauro del Sistema Archivistico Nazionale è costituito dai diversi vocabolari controllati presenti negli schema CAT SAN come supporto ad una descrizione normalizzata delle diverse risorse - istituti di conservazione, complessi archivistici, soggetti produttori - provenienti dai diversi sistemi aderenti al SAN. Per sua stessa natura, il 'Tesauro SAN' si presenta pertanto come uno strumento di classificazione aperto ad ulteriori evoluzioni ed integrabile con altri sistemi di organizzazione della conoscenza nazionali ed internazionali."

ISO 3166 Country Codes

"ISO 3166 is the International Standard for country codes and codes for their subdivisions. The purpose of ISO 3166 is to define internationally recognised codes of letters and/or numbers that we can use when we refer to countries and subdivisions. However, it does not define the names of countries – this information comes from United Nations sources (Terminology Bulletin Country Names and the Country and Region Codes for Statistical Use maintained by the United Nations Statistics Divisions)."
