Topic Maps (First Edition)


This is the first edition of the ISO 13250 Topic Maps Standard.

This International Standard provides a standardized notation for interchangeably representing information about the structure of information resources used to define topics, and the relationships between topics. A set of one or more interrelated documents that employs the notation defined by this International Standard is called a topic map. In general, the structural information conveyed by topic maps includes:

- groupings of addressable information objects around topics (‘occurrences’), and
- relationships between topics (‘associations’).
