Geographical Features


  An Introduction to the Thesaurus of Geographical Features

by David Germano (English, Last updated August 14, 2012)

This is the thesaurus of geographical features - administrative, natural, religious, and so forth - used in THL to categorize features described in its Place Dictionary. A feature thesaurus presents a typology of geographical features. These categories of geographic places thus help express the general nature of a given place. Overall, the thesaurus constitutes a hierarchical array of conceptual categories that show the relationship between different types of places.  This feature thesaurus is under constant development
