Project category: Topic Maps Engine
Project status: Alpha


To introduce the Topic Maps technology to the .NET world, the goal of this project is a small and extensible Topic Maps engine based on the TMAPI.Net project that implements the TMAPI 2.0 interfaces and unit test.

Another objective is compatibility with a wide range of plattforms like .NET 2.0+, Mono, .NET Compact Framework and Silverlight. That’s why the resulting engine should be small and lightweight.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
