The Corpus Vitrearum Germany is part of the International Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi (CVMA), which was founded in order to scientifically explore the entire stock of medieval glass painting in Europe as well as in the museums of the USA and Canada.

The project contributes a RDF vocabulary for image metadata to LOD.ACADEMY. It also has dveloped a generic LOD API and a location authority data cross-reference (Geonames, GND, VIAF, LOC, Getty and Wikidata) for cultural heritage locations with medieval stained glass.
