This article provides an introduction to the new topic map standard (ISO/IEC 13250) with
particular reference to the domain of encyclopaedia publishing, and discusses the
relationship between topic maps and the W3C recommendation Resource Description
Framework (RDF). It is based on the author’s participation in the development of the topic
map standard (representing Norway in SC34, the ISO committee responsible for SGML
and related standards), and two years’ collaboration with leading reference works
publishers in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Germany.

Topic Maps is an excellent paradigm to support human thinking and to visualize networked information. As part of my PhD project, I therefore chose Topic Maps as the conceptual foundation for designing and implementing a software prototype for semantic knowledge retrieval.
