Submit your topic maps to the Best Topic Map Contest @TMRA 2009 to get glory and win money.

Space Applications Services and TMRA invite all Topic Mappers to prove their mettle by creating the most impressive topic map in 2009.

Impressiveness of a topic map might be based on the covered topic, the ontology, the enormous linkage, or other unconventional features. Surprise the jury and the audience with a refreshing topic map. The overall goal of the challenge is to populate the world with new, amazing topic maps we can all learn from.


1st place: 200 EUR
2nd place: 50 EUR

The idea of Topic Maps is essential to enable dynamic information logistic. This requires a system that understands the context of the user to provide relevant informations and options automatically. Therefore semantic analysis is needed organizing content in a dynamic net structure.
