Metadata: UN’s Dag Hammarskjöld Library Launches New Linked Data Services Platform
From the Dag Hammarskjöld Library:
The Dag Hammarskjöld Library is pleased to announce the launch of their new linked data services platform: metadata.un.org.
The UNBIS Thesaurus is a database of controlled vocabulary used by UN programmes, funds and regional commissions to describe the UN’s published output (parliamentary documents, publications, reports etc.).
DESA’s SDG Taxonomy was produced in collaboration with technical experts from across the UN system. They developed a system of Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs) for the SDGs, the related targets and indicators, related entities linking to UNBIS Thesaurus terms, as well as the SDG Interface Ontology, maintained by UN Environment.
