The ‘Digitale Diathek’\'s hierarchically arranged thesaurus of places currently includes approximately 1 million objects with around 1.7 million different name headings in various languages (as of the end of 2011). It is constantly supplemented and editorially supervised in the framework of both the Getty Vocabulary Program and the editorial programme of the ‘Digitale Diathek’.
