Subject Taxonomy for the Media - the successor of the Subject Codes
Media Topics is a 1100-term taxonomy with a focus on categorizing text. It was released in 2010 and is a development based on the IPTC Subject Codes.
The Media Topics vocabulary can be viewed on the IPTC Controlled Vocabulary server at http://cv.iptc.org/newscodes/mediatopic In addition it can be downloaded as NewsML-G2 Knowledge Item, RDF/XML or RDF/Turtle document, please read the Guidelines. A more user-friendly tree-like view is also available.
Media Topics and Subject Codes
The development of Media Topics started with the Subject Codes vocabulary, extended the tree from 3 to 5 levels and reused the same 17 top level terms. The lower level terms have been revised and rearranged. Each Media Topic provides a mapping back to one of the Subject Codes.
