Structured text files (ASCII) resulting from the OCR applied to the Bibliography volumes of Iconclass, of which no computer files existed in 1990.
A set of the bibliography volumes was cut up, scanned and OCR'd and then the resulting raw scan-data were converted into structured text files. In the process the inconsistencies between the volumes, compiled and published over a period of 10 years, were manually corrected. The process took circa 18 months to complete.
Original Iconclass Browser. DOS version (Bracmat, C++). Not published as a standalone application, but used as the core library for the CD-ROM versions.
Editing of the Iconclass files and assisting with the design of the browser: Brandhorst & van Huisstede.
Bracmat programming: Bart Jongejan, supervised by Jörgen van den Berg
|1991: Dutch Printer's Devices 1.0.
||Before it was made available as a standalone edition, the first Windows (3.1) version of Iconclass was tested as part of a pictorial information system. The Koninklijke Bibliotheek and the Utrecht Department of Computer & Letteren joined forces to produce a CD-ROM of Dutch Printer's Devices, made accessible iconographically with the help of a complete version of the Iconclass system. It was created by Peter van Huisstede, Hans Brandhorst, Ger Duijfjes-Vellekoop, Bart Jongejan, Jacques Broeren.|
Supervision: Jörgen van den Berg

Finnish translation and browser
A partial translation of the Iconclass system in Finnish, as part of the Finto.fi open service for the publication and use of vocabularies, ontologies and classifications with an objective to promote interoperability. Finto.fi offers a browsing interface for vocabularies as well as open APIs for their integration into other applications. Finto AI provides a user interface and API for automated subject indexing.
N.B.: The Finto browser uses a hybrid approach, mixing hierarchical browsing with the alphabetical display of concept definitions. Iconclass system features like keys (+) are not included in the browsing system.
The only translation that has been published in printed form is the Italian version, compiled and edited by Marco Lattanzi, Simona Ciofetta and Elena Plances.
It was published in 2000 by the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione.
