WorthPoint is a known provider of valuation and associated services for art, antiques and collectibles. WorthPoint Forums provide access to expert options and debates regarding the world of collecting. Together, they are integrated with the company’s price guide, Worthopedia, which contains over 90 million items. This interesting topic was found on Auction Bytes in their article, “WorthPoint Launches Collector Forums.”

With that volume of content, a taxonomy is definitely in order, and WorthPoint plans to reintroduce its taxonomy on its new platforms. Properly indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
