This paper deals with Topic Maps and its advantages for information associating.

External Link: more information

Multinational corporations often face the challenge of finding subject-matter experts many continents away. Conventional metadata in a corporate directory provide a starting point, but the Topic Maps model provides a means of enhancing these directories by giving them the ability to merge in metadata from diverse sources, such as other external corporate directories, with PSIs [Published Subject Indicators] now being standardized by OASIS [Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards] committees, as well as a method for creating associations between the information. Employee and regional office metadata of parent and service companies will be bridged with associations and use of ISO 3166-1 country PSIs that were created by the OASIS GeoLang Technical Committee.

Topic Maps offered the semantic flexibility that I needed in Topincs, an application with an unlimited domain. It allowed me to make statements about any subjects. Exactly what I was looking for.
