Real Estate Taxonomy now available from WAND

Happy new year!  I'm very excited about 2012 and think it is going to be a great year for taxonomies.   2011 saw a ton of growth in interest and awareness of taxonomies, much of this driven by adoption of SharePoint 2010 and the term store feature, but certainly other applications as well.  I'll post more about this separately, but for now, I want to focus on the first new taxonomy launch of the year from WAND:  Real Estate Taxonomy.

WAND Real Estate Taxonomy
With 733 terms and 169 synonyms, the WAND Real Estate Taxonomy covers the three main pillars of a real estate company: real estate development, real estate investment, and real estate management, as well as financing and analysis.

This real estate taxonomy was designed specifically for a real estate centric organization who is undertaking a document management or search initiative. It covers the important concepts and document types that a real estate organization may want to use to tag and search for documents.   As always, every taxonomy is going to need some customization for your specific organizational needs, but the WAND Real Estate Taxonomy will jump start any taxonomy initiative.

The WAND Real Estate Taxonomy is available standalone and as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.



Keep your eye on this blog for more news about new taxonomies that are made available.  In 2011, we released a number of new titles including:

Mining Taxonomy
Legal Taxonomy
Skills Taxonomy
Manufacturing Taxonomy
Insurance Taxonomy
Information Technology Taxonomy

We plan to release even more in 2012 and look forward to continuing to be the leading provider of pre-built taxonomies to information professionals.
