More innovative indexing

The Discovery Channel and The Weather Channel have purchased software to help index and categorize their content.

The Discovery Channel is using Access Innovations' Thesaurus Master, which allows users to construct a taxonomy based on custom vocabularies to quickly and efficiently parse data. The solution also enables individual users to view and conform their taxonomy to fit their particular purposes.

Access Innovation reports in a recent news release that the solution—compliant with various monolingual and multilingual thesauri standards--simplifies the construction of taxonomies by allowing the user access to the terms, their history and the hierarchical branches that comprise the overall taxonomy. According to Access Innovations, the user can change the content of a term as it evolves over time.

The Weather Channel has purchased Access Innovations’ MAIstro Enterprise Edition, and contracted its editorial department for taxonomy development and rule building. The Weather Channel needed an efficient search engine to index the content of its newly constructed taxonomy, and to parse data quickly. The Weather Channel also sought the accuracy provided by MAIstro in differentiating between the subtle differences in weather patterns, Access Innovations reports.
