Geolexica is the online glossary for geographic information technology from ISO/TC 211 Geographic information/Geomatics.
The name “geolexica” is a combination of the Greek prefix “geo-” (of and pertaining to the Earth) and the suffix “lexica” derived from the Greek “lexiko”, counterpart of the English “lexicon” (vocabulary).
Terminology entries in Geolexica fully reflect entries given in the ISO/TC 211 Multi-Lingual Glossary of Terms (MLGT), where its authoritative English terms originate from ISO/TC 211 standards.
English terms and definitions are from published ISO/TC 211 standards (normative);
Terminology entries are translated across fourteen languages. While these are considered informative, they may be based on authoritative national standards in their respective countries.
