12. Thesaurus

12.1 Introduction

Thesaurus support in GeoNetwork allows:

  • Metadata editing: controlled vocabulary on the metadata editing interface for ISO and Dublin Core

  • Administration interface allows import/export/creation/browse thesaurus

  • Search interface: a list of keyword is proposed for the keyword criteria

On a node, thesaurus types could be defined as:

  • External: When a thesaurus is imported, it is flagged to ”external” which means that users are not allowed to edit the thesaurus. This thesaurus is managed by an external organisation.

  • Local: When a thesaurus is created, it is flagged to ”local” which means that users are allowed to edit the thesaurus.
