Cultural-ON

"L’ontologia Cultural-ON, realizzata nell’ambito di una Convenzione tra il MIBACT e l’Istituto di Scienze e Tecnologie della Cognizione del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (ISTC-CNR), ha lo scopo di modellare i dati che caratterizzano gli istituti e i luoghi della cultura, come ad esempio i dati sugli enti o sulle persone che hanno un determinato ruolo sugli istituti e luoghi della cultura, le sedi fisiche dei luoghi, i contatti, eventuali materiali multimediali che descrivono un istituto e luogo della cultura e ogni altra informazione utile al pubblico per poter accedere all’istituto

"The ontology aims at modelling the data on cultural institutes or sites such as data regarding the agents that play a specific role on cultural institutes or sites, the sites themselves, the contact points, all multimedia files which describe the cultural institute or site and any other information useful to the public in order to access the institute or site. Moreover, the ontology represents events that can take place in specific cultural institutes or sites. The following figure illustrates some of the core elements of the ontology.

"The first version of this thesaurus (Sept. 2011) was prepared based on terms and term relationships derived from ISO/DIS Land Administration Domain Model (dated 2010-03-01) which was initiated by Peter van Oosterom and Christiaan Lemmen, as well as terms adopted from other thesauri including the AGROVOC multilingual agricultural vocabulary, the GEMET Thesaurus, INSPIRE Spatial Data Themes, and the STW Thesaurus for Economics. In version 2 (Oct. 2012), the about 110 terms of the version 1.0 was supplemented with terms, which address the dynamic or process aspect of the domain.

"Een thesaurus is een, meestal hiërarchische, woordenlijst die wordt gebruikt om terminologie te standaardiseren. Onze thesauri worden gebruikt om informatie te helpen indexeren en terugvinden in onze databanken. (...) We stellen onze thesauri samen met een bijzondere aandacht voor onze lokale Vlaamse situatie, zonder internationale thesauri zoals de Art & Architecture Thesaurus en de thesauri van Historic England uit het oog te verliezen."

"A thesaurus is a mostly hierarchical list of words used to standardize terminology. Our thesauri are used to index and find information in our databases. (...) We construct our thesauri with special attention to our local Flemish situation, but without losing sight of international thesauri such as the Art & Architecture Thesaurus and the thesauri of Historic England."

Global Industry Classification Standard

"In 1999, MSCI and S&P Global developed the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS), seeking to offer an efficient investment tool to capture the breadth, depth and evolution of industry sectors. GICS is a four-tiered, hierarchical industry classification system. It consists of 11 sectors, 24 industry groups, 68 industries and 157 sub-industries. Companies are classified quantitatively and qualitatively. Each company is assigned a single GICS classification at the sub-industry level according to its principal business activity.
