The LoCloud vocabulary service is based on the federated thesaurus model. With the federated model it is possible to have independent vocabularies from various languages in the same domain. The various vocabularies in the different languages are aligned via concept identifiers.
A well-established open-source vocabulary platform, TemaTres, was chosen as baseline for the development. The supports the importing of vocabularies and online collaboration in the creation and updating of vocabularies. The current version available is Version 2.
API services are available for use in local cataloguing systems.
