Dear Kostas,

     the data from the IHU browser is actually drawn from the sparql 
endpoint at http://publicspending.medialab.ntua.gr/ .
The IHU project uses the string descriptions taken from the greek 
taxation service (TAXIS), but there is no actual standardization or  
schema involved and sometimes the strings have overlapping meanings and 
even typos.
In the publicspending.gr project we have actually deployed a small 
taxonomy for greek organizations as a profile of ORG, having in mind 
future mappings to foreign classification schemata.
You can see the legal entity types here 
http://publicspending.medialab.ntua.gr/en/endpoint , selecting the 
predefined query "Categorization of legal entities" from the example 
queries dropdown.


Kind regards,
Marios Meimaris

I think that rov:companyType property is not suitable for public organizations, or is it? Introducing for instance a concept "Regional Administration Body' in order to classify an instance such as the public organization 'North Aegean Regional Administration' body of Greece, could be possbile?
