The Getty Continues to Expand Access to Vocabularies

The Getty Research Institute released the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names (TGN) as linked open data. Anyone may now access the vocabulary to download, share, or modify it for free under an Open Data Commons Attribution License. The TGN has 2 million-plus current and historical place names such as cities, archaeological sites, and nations that help users conduct humanities research.

The Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) became available in February, and the remaining vocabularies—the Cultural Objects Name Authority (CONA) and the Union List of Artist Names (ULAN)—will follow as linked open data by the end of 2015.
