1824Re: [TaxoCoP] Taxonomies, Search, and Microsoft SharePoint
- Feb 12, 2007I have recently taken a look at Factiva's taxonomy and metadata
management tool Synaptica - it is designed primarily as a taxonomy
management tool (many of the tools I've looked at are primarily
thesaurus management tools), is quite user friendly, and can link all
kinds of controlled vocabularies to each other, moving it in the
direction of enterprise metadata management or ontology development.
They have also worked hard on standards for export/interface with
search and CMS tools. Don't know if there's a Sharepoint integration.
Quoting Joe Lamantia <joe.lamantia@...>:
