Integration of UAT vocabulary

The domain-oriented Unified Astronomy Thesaurus vocabulary is based on concepts which are also used in neighboring domains, such as geophysics, especially magnetic field research, near earth-space exploration and solar-terestrial physics. The space weather and space climate domains are coverd by UAT concepts too. Therefore we think, the integration of the UAT vocabulary into the Vocabulary Broker is a benefit for astronomers but also geo and space scientists. Probably the impact is even bigger, connecting the outer space domain with fields of earth and environmental sciences.

We used the newest version of the SKOS-formated UAT.rdf file for the maching with GCMD, SPASE and ESPAS keywords (date of download: 2016-08-10).
