The CROSSOVER Taxonomy

Crossover project (logo)

This taxonomy was created by the Crossover Project as a means to classify resources relevant to ICT for Governance and Policy Making. One way it's being used is as a controlled vocabulary for tagging bookmarks on the social bookmarking service Diigo.

Within the project itself, we use the taxonomy to organise the resources on the Crossover Platform. If you tag Diigo bookmarks using this taxonomy and include the tag Crossoverproject then what you bookmark will appear automatically in the Crossover Platform. For example, the report on the Using Open Data Workshop is tagged:

Spelling here is as used in the original taxonomy so I'm farid that there is a mix of English and American spelling (e.g. organisation & modeling). Nothing's perfect eh?

To Do:
I plan to make a proper SKOS concept scheme from this. Not a big job but more than I have time to do right now.
