Various vocabulary tools that are currently available and open source have been evaluated for serving as baseline for the LoCloud experimental vocabulary application. Research showed that the implementation and adaptation of the TemaTres tool (http://www.vocabularyserver.com/), an open source vocabulary server and web application to manage and exploit vocabularies, thesauri, taxonomies and formal representations of knowledge would be a very appropriate starting point for this development.
The vocabulary web services of the tool can be used for the integration of the vocabularies into remote local systems. And vice versa it is possible to integrate existing concepts from remote vocabularies via the web services into the cloud based vocabulary tool. The webservice calls “import” and “linkTerm” were added to TemaTres for LoCloud purposes.
