Mapping between taxonomies (taxonomy author or standards setter)

  • Try to find ways of collaborating and sharing definitions so as to minimise the need for mapping between taxonomies
  • Publish a concordance to convey your opinion on how a user should relate one taxonomy to another
    • That might be between different versions of the same taxonomy
    • That might be between totally different taxonomies
  • A concordance is most useful when it is both machine and human readable
