Taxonomy

Taxonomy

What:
A hierarchical classification scheme that relates broader parent terms to narrower child terms. Often created as part of a thesaurus that also shows related terms and preferred terms.

Why:
Can structure a set of content such as a website by assigning individual taxonomy terms to specific content or pages or vice versa. Works in conjunction with other classification and findability systems like facets, tagging, and search.
