Taxonomy – Structuring Tags Hierarchically

Taxonomies allow you to classify and present your digital media hierarchically. This gives you a tree structure that can be used to analyze and recognize connections. Thus, hypernyms and meronyms can be easily derived. A simple example of a taxonomy from the field of botany is: nature -> plant -> tree -> apple tree. In this way, connections and affiliations are quickly identified, even when they are not instantly apparent.

Taxonomy in a DAM system – best in combination with tags

In a digital asset management system (DAM), tags can be mapped onto taxonomies. This improves searching for and sorting assets.

Taxonomies also simplify tagging because there is no longer a need to assign all hypernym categories. As in the above example, it is enough to tag the image of an apple true simply with ‘apple tree’. All further hypernym classes, such as tree or plant, are entailed in the taxonomy and do not need to be entered manually.

Taxonomies in AdmiralCloud – taxonomies for everyone!

AdmiralCloud’s digital asset management allows for taxonomies to be created and managed easily. Taxonomies can quickly and comfortably be created, expanded or deleted. Tags within a taxonomy can be moved at any time using drag & drop. The number of subcategories is clearly shown.

If a tag from an existing taxonomy is assigned to an asset, all the other hypernym tags will also be allocated. This can then be adjusted manually. In AdmiralCloud, taxonomies can assign assets to particular areas by forming categories. As a result, searching and archiving become much more efficient.
