A web-based controlled vocabulary of map-related geoscientific terms of the Geological Survey.
The GBA Thesaurus provides bilingual descriptions and relevant quotes related to terms in maps and text publications of the Geological Survey of Austria. He shows associated broader and narrower terms, related terms and synonyms and is currently divided into the 6 different themes
Responsible for the content is the Thesaurus editorial team, which consists of thematic specialists from the Geological Survey.
The objective of the GBA-thesaurus is a technical management of the expertise of the Geological Survey (Knowledge Representation). Moreover, the terms (concepts) of the GBA thesaurus are used for attribution of spatial geodata. We fulfil, therefore, the legal requirements of the EU Directive 2007/2 / EC INSPIRE which has been transferred into Austrian law in 2010 (GeoDIG - Geodateninfrastrukturgesetzes 2010).
