MAO/TAO in Finto service

The National Board of Antiquities and the Finnish Terminology Centre began a shared project for updating the Ontology for Museum Domain and Applied Arts (MAO/TAO) in spring 2017. The updated ontology includes some 2 000 new concepts related to cultural environment, increasing the amount of concepts in the ontology to 12 500. All concepts have terms in Finnish. As a part of the project the experts from the National Board of Antiquities together with a terminologist from the Finnish Terminology Centre composed new definitions and harmonized pre-existing definitions for ca. 200 concepts. All in all the ontology contains 418 concepts with definitions in Finnish.
