Note on GEMET usage:
For the current WDCOSF-Demonstrator we omitted GEMET-Themes and GEMET-Supergroups and used only a subset of GEMET-Groups of the GEMET-Thesaurus in SKOS-Format, as dowloadable from https://www.eionet.europa.eu/gemet/latest/gemet.rdf.gz. Date of Download: 01.07.2017. For use in the context of WDCOSF, we only kept the english labels and descriptions.
