Diccionaris cartogràfics


Diccionaris cartogràfics - Presentació

What is it? Diccionaris cartogràfics (‘Cartographic dictionaries’) is a compilation of four dictionaries edited by the Cartographic and Geological Institute of Catalonia with the advice of TERMCAT, printed by Enciclopèdia Catalana.

The titles and authors of the four dictionaries are:

- RABELLA i VIVES, Josep M.; PANAREDA i CLOPÉS, Josep M.; RAMAZZINI i GOBBO, Graziana. Diccionari terminològic de cartografia.
- FRA PALEO, Urbano. Diccionari terminològic de fotogrametria.
- NUNES, Joan. Diccionari terminològic de sistemes d'informació geogràfica.
- PONS FERNÁNDEZ, Xavier; ARCALÍS PLANAS, Anna. Diccionari terminològic de teledetecció.

Diccionaris cartogràfics, therefore, provide in a unified query more than eight thousand eight hundred terms related to cartography, with equivalents and definitions, and often with notes that provide new information.

Is the origin of the terms indicated? With the aim of respecting the area, the characteristics and the authorship of each product, the origin of each term is indicated by means of the bibliographic citation.

What actions have been done? The publication in a single online dictionary has only involved formal modifications in the data. Basically, in addition to marking the origin of each term, the representation of notes has been unified, and the encyclopaedic definitions have been divided, so there is a paragraph starting with the definition itself and additional information is offered in different parts according to their meaning.

How should you use the dictionary? Clicking on Consulta de termes (‘Term search’), terms can be looked up either using the alphabetical index (there is an index for each language) or the thematic index (all terms are grouped according to their typology); also, simple and advanced searches can be made in the upper space Text de la consulta (‘Text search’).
