Taxonomy refers to the feature of classifying information and organizing data in a systematic manner. It consists of vocabularies which are a collection of terms. A term is one individual component listed in the vocabulary which is a subcategory of a vocabulary. There are two types of vocabularies: controlled and free tagging. Controlled vocabulary disallows users from adding data, whereas free tagging allows users to define, add or classify data. A hierarchy determines the depth of the subcategory of the vocabulary. Lastly, it allows the usage of synonyms by linking similar words together. This helps to prevent duplication.
For example: Vocabulary: Dance Term: Salsa Sub Term: Toronto Salsa Sub Term: Cuban Salsa
