Geo Taxonomy: linking taxonomy and geolocation  Why?  It makes sense when you have to use taxonomy and geo location services  It is easier for users to tag a node than adding geo-information to a node  It allows a good integration with OpenLayers to display terms on a map Popularity: 1255 sites D7 status: ? Linked to OpenLayers...
  • 7. The Guardian 09 / 11 / 10 The Web A-Team 6. OpenCalais: Thomson / Reuters term extractor  Why?  Because you want to auto-tag content  You want to rely on a central authority to tag content between different users  It is a quick way to add semantic web to your content (adds RDF support, Linked Data...) Popularity: 4872 sites D7 status: D7CX Included in OpenPublish, Managing News
  • 8. The Guardian 09 / 11 / 10 The Web A-Team 7. Taxonomy in D7  Taxonomy terms are now fields:  They can associated to node, comments, users...  Fields can be added to terms so:  Taxonomy image is obsolete  Most of the modules extending terms will also be obsolete  No need to create specific content types if content has to be the basis for classification  This will change site architecture
