VICOS is a tool that allows users to complement lexical spaces (as created by LEXUS) with ontological spaces. With VICOS, users can define concepts they judge culturally relevant, and connect them to other concepts via a multitude of (user-definable) relation types. All concepts are anchored in the language to express them, and links can be established to objects in the multimedia archive to further describe them. The resulting conceptual space thus adds a new dimension to language documentation.

ViCoS is currently not actively developed by TLA.
