SISSVoc API

Spatial Information Services Stack Vocabulary Service (SISSVoc) is a standardised interface (API) for querying, accessing and navigating SKOS-based vocabularies - concepts, collections and their relationships. NEII SISSVoc is a customised Linked Data API to browse environmental vocabularies and access them programmatically.

NEII SISSVoc allows users to perform the following functions:

Browse vocabulary: It allows users to browse a vocabulary and access concepts mapped to it.

Search concepts:  You can search concepts by searching the concept name using 'Exact label' or by searching a substring of the concept name using the 'Text within label' functionality.

Sort concepts: Concepts in a vocabulary can be sorted alphabetically by properties such as concept label, definition, notation etc.

Access concept details: NEII SISSVoc API provides access to concept details including definition, relationships, narrower and broader concepts, notation etc.

Programmatic access: A technical user can also use the Linked Data API to access vocabularies and their concepts programmatically to integrate with an existing service.
