The dataset of VGT at the Global Signbank is a restricted dataset of Flemish Sign Language signs collected by Onno Crasborn and Sam Verstraete. The dataset is owned by the Vlaams Gebarentaal Centrum, Antwerp.

The Global Signbank - VGT dataset is the central hub for lexicographic data for Flemish Sign Language. Team members of the Vlaams Gebarentaal Centrum (VGTC) are adding signs to the Global Signbank VGT dataset from various sources. It contains all signs from the Woordenboek Vlaamse Gebarentaal and all results of lexicographical research done by the VGTC after 2004.
