Log of the TAH public website

This website is dedicated to the Terminologia Anatomica Humana TAH, open in the public domain since December 2021.

The chapters of this terminology are realised starting from TA98, adding TA2 and other findings when necessary. The new TAH is intended to replace all previous editions of the terminology, waiting for an official decision of the IFAA general assembly.

Care is given to maintain this website as stable as possible. However, important developments must be progressively added and may impact the overall presentation.

The present page displays in inverted chronologic order the list of the main actions that have been performed on this site. Move to the information buttons in the list in order to see detailed information.

31 May 2024 Regeneration of the partonomic lists for French and Spanish

All partonomic lists of TAH in LAFR and LAES have been regenerated. They include the links from partonomy to taxonomy.

24 May 2024 Links from partonomy to taxonomy

A new hyperlink is created when possible for each entity in a partonomic list, driving to the corresponding location in the taxonomy. This is possible when the taxonomic information for the entity has been collected and the related portion of the taxonomy has been effectively developed. A reverse hyperlink from taxonomy to partonomy will be created at some future time.

22 May 2024 Regeneration of the partonomic lists.

All partonomic lists of TAH in LAEN have been regenerated. The partonomy of TAH is now totally available on the website, as well as PDF and table format, allowing transfers for personal convenience.

16 May 2024 Full TAH now available.

All chapters of TAH have been now processed and validated. They are visible in the partonomy. The adjustment of the website to all new chapters is underway. The vailability in four languages is the matter of a couple of weeks.

20 Feb 2024 Unit page adapted for display of partonomic relations

The presentation of Unit pages has been improved in order to display the specialized part_of relations used in each father/child transitions of the partonomy.

The new version of Unit pages will be visible only on any new Unit page generated since now. The chapter on endocine glands has been entirely regenerated.

19 Feb 2024 Update of partonomic relations

Partonomic relations have been renamed following a systematic rule. In the partonomic hierarchy, the generic part_of relation is specialized for each transition from father to child. Each possible transition receives a specifc relation with a dedicated name as well as an acronym, used as a short display. The on_line documentation of each relation has been updated, as well as the chaper 13 on partonomy of the Universal book of terminology.

7 Feb 2024 New occurrence section for vocabulary

All the vocabulary units have an occurrence section, which goal is to document and to display all occurrences of the word introduced by this unit.

20 Jan 2024 Creation of the tests for languages

A collection of tests has been created for each language of the website. Three categories of tests will be progressively made available: 1) tests per word category, systematically applied to the entire vocabulary; 2) tests depending on the type of generated terms applied on selected representative terms; 3) tests of universal functions applied on selected representative terms. Most of the Latin tests are available and the tests for other languages will be later developed.
