2214RE: [TaxoCoP] 7x3 classification
- Sep 5, 2007Hi all.I don't know if this is anywhere near the mark, but my encounter with '7x3' in the context of taxonomies is in relation to advice from some practitioner or other in the past who said that a good taxonomy adheres to the 7x3 rule, i.e. no more than seven top-level categories and no more than three levels. Might that be what Julie's customer was referring to? It also happens that for a card sorting exercise I run, I print the terms on label sheets contain 7x3 labels, but I doubt that that's what's being referred to :-)Regards,Bob

I'm sorry I am not familiar with that particular classification scheme.
There are no relevant search results on the first page of Google -- nor did I have more success with my preferred search engine, Clusty. I also tried Yahoo and Ask.com .
When I put "" around the phrase, I received no hits. '7X3' in the results refer to various measurements or data codes or a numbering scheme. One result was for the framework of hospital beds in a study!

Forgive me for not sending an intro first, I've been lurking here for ages, and this is the first time I've needed to ask a question of this knowledgeable community. One of my customers asked me if I was familiar with a 7x3 classification scheme and I have to admit - I'm stumped. Anyone out there have a reference to this?
