The extension of the former ‘LE:NOTRE Glossary’ provides new opportunities for exchange of knowledge and information via The creation of an online Thesaurus that allows to clarify and make the terms and concepts across the broad field of landscape studies explicit is an important output of LE:NOTRE III.


Exploring the ideas and meanings behind the terms opens a door into the heart of the discipline and to the issues which concern both academics and practitioners alike. The latest development of the Thesaurus now allows all users of not only to define, translate and connect relevant terms with entries of other databases, but also to create relations between the terms. Additional to synonyms you may now add the following relations:


  • Broader terms. More generic terms than current term.
  • Narrower terms. Terms more specific than current term.
  • Quasi-synonyms. Terms that are no synonyms of current term but can be used, sometimes with that meaning.
  • Related terms. Related term that cannot be inserted on any other category.


Next to translations now you may also add approximative translations marked with the symbol [≈].
