The Dutch tax office manages a very large amount of sources regarding legislation: 20 million webpages from 1500 unique sources including 2500 web links. In addition, there are 22 local intranets with their own content and copies.

To be able to deal with major redundancies, different formats and problems with functionality and accessibility, the tax office started a project to manage this large information base better and make it more accessible.

They have chosen for Topic Maps because of the following qualities:

  • the possibility to represent complex relations
  • identification support
  • the possibilities for merging
  • Topic Maps being an international open standard

Morpheus delivered technical and conceptual know-how about Topic Map applications.
