Beta SKOS Controlled Vocabularies at NGDC

We hope that this vocabulary service will support ECS and the Index to Geological Samples. It is currently under development and testing. The goal is to support vocabularies that can be interpreted by computers and humans. The current intent is to post a listing of vocabulary terms that can be referenced in our metadata and could potentially be used in greater ontologies.
