Service description

Skosmos is an open source code thesaurus and ontology browser application operating on the background of the Finto service developed in the National Library of Finland. Skosmos development takes place on Github platform and is open to public viewing and commenting.  Skosmos user interface is available in dozens of languages and language versions are regularly updated as a part of each release version.  In addition to the Finto service, Skosmos has also been taken to use elsewhere, even abroad (e.g. UNESCO and FAO use Skosmos). Skosmos development suggestions have also been received from abroad. Skosmos has been developed for thesauri and ontologies in SKOS format.
