At present we provide two vocabularies:
Lithology vocabulary and the chrono-stratigraphy used in maps for the Czech and Slovak region.
Lithology is based on survey's wide used codebook
The codification like 000, 110 has the inner structure: 000-099 are loose sediments, 100-199 are consolidated sediments, 300-399 are vulcanites e.t.c...
In the stratigraphy all identifiers begin with "SX" which means
something like "Stratigraphy extended" and continue with the code similar to
ISChart notification (with regional specific terms for Bohemian Massive and West Carpathians ).
It contains the English terminology translated by the geological specialist (not by me).
To avoid the mis-interpretation we assume that all real GeoSCiML items will be provided with a non-structural text description in English.

recommendation for compulsory attributes in the legend - genetic, fault
and line description, compound material etc. We expect that when there
exists some common international categorization we will be able to
convert to it easily. See also the used database scheme in Documentation - GeoSciML section on this site
