Standards of Topic Maps

  • Community Standards
Besides the ISO standards, there are some community standards.
  • Programming APIs: 
  •  Java: TMAPI
  • Serialization Formats
  •  JSON Topic Maps
  • Linear Topic Maps Notation (superseeded by CTM)
  • Modeling conventions
  •  Normalizing Association cardinality: Many binary Associations are easier to handle than one big association with many roles.
  • Directed association names: Directed Names for (bidirectional) associations should be defined as names for the association type topic and scoped with the role type topic of the source role.
