I'm designing for content where the taxonomy + metadata have never been put to good use in this subject matter.

I'm seeking inspiration beyond wikipedia: where a curated taxonomy + metadata (not user generated) have richly enhanced the browsing experience of the content.

I'm not interested in the metadata itself, just how its been used in the interface.

Thanks!

  • Can you give some examples of non-user-generated metadata? Do you mean things like page views? – Alex Feinman Sep 21 '11 at 19:41
  • I mainly meant to exclude 'folksonomy' - e.g. tagging. – ben Sep 29 '11 at 10:21

The BBC have been working hard on their BBC Wildlife section for a while - eg see top level section for:

They've been using domain driven designbook over traditional taxonomic architectures, and organizing information by things and their relationships rather than by documents for example.
