Classifying Information

Besides allowing you to create indexed collections that support different kinds of search, and besides providing tools for extracting various kinds of entities from unstructured data, K2 also helps you to create classification structures that aid users to more readily access the specific information they seek.

Classifying information into categories and subcategories allows your users to locate individual files by drilling down through the concepts represented by each category until they find relevant documents. It can also help to profile or classify documents for routing purposes.

Verity supports several kinds of information-retrieval structures based on these categorical hierarchies, called taxonomies.
