Taxonomies/Ontologies

Metataxis has a wealth of experience in building taxonomies and ontologies in a wide range of domains.

Metataxis has devised taxonomies and ontologies and their associated metadata models for government, NHS, third sector and commercial clients. We can review your requirements for findability and content management, and design semantic structures which are appropriate to your content, users, technology and budget.

We understand how important it is to exploit the benefits of a taxonomy or ontology to their fullest extent, and we have experience of developing structures specifically to support the automatic assignment of subject terms or retention schedules, as well as to support more sophisticated querying of content.

We can advise on what the metadata should be, and what the most efficient ways of capturing it will be. If required, we can provide people to do the tagging for you in order to take the burden off in-house staff. We also provide taxonomy maintenance services.

Metataxis provides public and in-house training courses in taxonomy, thesaurus, ontology and metadata development.
