This scheme specifies categories that summarize the geologic history of an Earth material. (ie, a genetic process classifier term), as defined by the IUGS Commission for Geoscience Information (CGI) Geoscience Terminology Working Group. Examples include igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic, shock metamorphic, volcanic, pyroclastic. By extension, this vocabulary includes all concepts in this conceptScheme, as well as concepts in any previous versions of the scheme.
2009-07-14. Generate SKOS encoding of vocabulary from Excel spreadsheet.
2009-12-07 SMR Update metadata properties for version, creator, title, and format. Change skos:HistoryNote to dc:source for information on origin of terms and definitions.
2010-02-08 SMR add prefLabel strings; they were missing up to this time. Add and modify hierarchical relations to better represent concept hierachy. Add TopConcept assertions
2010-02-08. SMR Clean up namespace declarations so concept URI's follow CGI URN scheme; concepts have URN, are not document fragments.
2010-11-28 SMR replace URN with http URI according to CGI URI scheme (see https://www.seegrid.csiro.au/wiki/bin/view/CGIModel/PersistentIdentifiersInGeoSciMLServices)
2012-02-07 SMR update URI to replace numeric final token with English-language string as in original URN scheme.
2013-02-04 SMR Check update to 201211 version; add collection entity, check all pref labels are lower case, remove owl:NamedIndividual and Owl:Thing rdf:types. Add missing for missing definitions.
2016-11-21 OLR regenerate SKOS-RDF file as part of migration to new vocabulary server. No changes to terms from the previous 2012 version.
This file contains the 2016 SKOS-RDF version of the CGI Genetic Category vocabulary. Compilation and review in MS Excel spreadsheet, converted to MS Excel for SKOS generation using SKOS_for_GA_from_XLS_2016.03.xslt
