Capability: An operation or information that a service provider is able to provide to a service consumer. 

Catalogue: Collection of entries, each of which describes and points to a feature collection. Catalogues include indexed listings of feature collections, their content, their coverage, and of meta-information. A catalogue registers the existence, location, and description of feature collections held by an Information Community. Catalogues provide the capability to add and delete entries. A minimum Catalogue will include the name for the feature collection and the location handle that specifies where these data may be found. Each catalogue is unique to its Information Community.(Derived from http://www.opengeospatial.org/resources/?page=glossary)

CBD: Convention on Biological Diversity - www.biodiv.org

CESAB: CEntre for the Synthesis and Analysis of Biodiversity

CO2: Carbon Dioxide

CoL: Catalogue of Life

Component: Hardware component (device) or Software Component.[OGC 07-097; RM-OA 2007] or (in Taverna) a workflow that conforms to a specific profile to be used in different workflows.

Coverage: Function from a spatial, temporal, or spatio-temporal domain to an attribute range. Coverage associates a position within its domain to a record of values of defined data types. Thus, coverage is a feature with multiple values for each attribute type, where each direct position within the geometric representation of the feature has a single value for each attribute type. For example it represents space/time-varying phenomena that relate to a spatio-temporal domain.
