A Networked Planet white paper.

This paper outlines the role that topic maps can play in the Information Architecture and Systems Architecture of web-sites. The challenges in creating and maintaining content-rich web-sites are outlined from the perspective of the Information Architect, the Systems Architect and the Content Creator.

The main bulk of this paper focuses on the strategies for managing site navigation using topic maps and for integrating content from multiple sources on a topic maps-driven web-site. Our goal is to encourage further discussion about these strategies and the implementation patterns that support them.
