Applied Semantics Adds New Industry Taxonomies to Auto-Categorizer. (Internet Publishing Today)


Applied Semantics, Inc., a software tools and applications provider for unstructured information management, has announced the addition of four new taxonomies as extensions to its Auto-Categorizer product, a content categorization solution that maps documents into one or multiple pre-defined or customer-specified hierarchies.

* SIC (Standard Industrial Classification System)-The U.S. Department of labor's system of 1,000-plus four-level codes is used to classify all business establishments by the types of products or services they offer.

* Geography Codes--An 800-category taxonomy consisting of country codes that are standardized around the ISO 3166 alpha-2 code schema. This taxonomy is supplemented with a list of U.S. states and major U.S. and international cities.
