Clearing the skies: From tag clouds to topic maps


By murray - Posted on 20 March 2007

We are developing a web application that facilitates using topicmaps to build and share maps of meta tags. This is primarily on two levels; there is a need to be able to connect various tags together to express extended meaning, and there is a need to connect tags from one system to tags in other systems, to technically show the sameness of the subjects the tags are representing.

In this paper we discuss the pedagogical rationale and the technical architecture for a web service application that promotes aggregation of tags through semantic associations.
