What are some of the uses of Terminology Services?

Terminology Services allows users to find the meaning of a broad range of environmental terms important to EPA's business. In addition to providing meaning, terms are also used in cataloging, indexing, search engines, spell checking devices, and in keyword lists. Users can compile and create custom glossaries by selecting terms from across the vocabularies in the system. They can also compare terms and definitions used in different vocabularies. Programs can publish their glossary in Terminology Services, thus eliminating the need to maintain a separate web page for it. Finally, content editors can insert pop-up/hover definitions from Terminology Services on their websites.
