From TemaTres 1.1 release you can use an utility developed by Nicolas Poulain to import thesauri from tabulated textfiles to TemaTres.

To do that you need:

  • Text file (in utf-8 encoding) with the list of terms that you want to import.
  • The list must contain one termOne or more words designating a concept. See also compound term, entry term, and precoordinated term. per line
  • The directory “/doc” in the your TemaTres instalation directory must have write permissions.
  • To express a hierarchical relationship. A relationship between or among terms in a controlled vocabulary that depicts broader (generic) to narrower (specific) or whole-part relationships; begins with the words broader term (BT), or narrower term (NT)., you must put one tabulated space after each carriage return for each broader termA term to which another term or multiple terms are subordinate in a hierarchy. In thesauri, the relationship indicator for this type of term is BT. (BT) and her narrower termA term that is subordinate to another term or to multiple terms in a hierarchy. In thesauri, the relationship indicator for this type of term is NT. (NT).

Example for hierarchical relationship:

South America
  Buenos Aires

  • To express equivalence between terms, put equal symbol (=) between each prefered term and her non-prefered term.

Example for equivalence:
United States of America = USA

A collection of Utah-specific independent controlled vocabularyA list of terms that have been enumerated explicitly. This list is controlled by and is available from a controlled vocabulary registration authority. All terms in a controlled vocabulary must have an unambiguous, non-redundant definition. NOTE: This is a design goal that may not be true in ... terms divided into discrete, mutually exclusive facets (i.e. node labels) with smaller controlled vocabularies. Each facetA grouping of concepts of the same inherent category. Examples of categories that may be used for grouping concepts into facets are: activities, disciplines, people, materials, places, etc. has “labels\” organized into sub-hierarchies.
