An ISO standard for representing knowledge structures and associating information and resources to those structures. The topic map represents the topics, associations (relationships between the topics), and occurrences. Topic maps are commonly used in building topic-driven content Web sites and also to organize the content in content management systems, in place of folder hierarchies.
