Extract Taxonomy Terms
What it does
Matches text against entries in a pre-defined hierarchical taxonomy while also taking into account their alternative names. Taxonomy terms are extracted from the text and grouped according to common broader categories.
What it is for
Taxonomies provide consistent metadata across all documents created and stored within an organization. Regardless of document content or name, taxonomies help group documents by subject and other broad categories.
What the benefits are
No need to employ information architects or taxonomy experts in order to manually update and maintain metadata. Pingar’s taxonomy extraction tools provide an automated way of tailoring search and metadata solutions to industry-specific vocabularies.
