Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, yet the global response remains divided. Climate Tagger is a new suite of software tools to help strengthen and unite organizations and individuals using knowledge to fight climate change, improve resiliency and further green growth across the world.
Climate Tagger works by applying automated tagging to unstructured content in databases, websites or online libraries in French, English, German, Spanish or Portuguese. The result is a streamlined knowledge system, with key concepts connected to definitions and taxonomies created and vetted by experts and linked to related content within and beyond the system at hand. Climate Tagger is based on the multilingual Climate Smart Thesaurus, a vast catalogue of specialized terminology, including mapped links to synonyms and related terms.
Climate Tagger is currently available as a direct module for the Drupal content management system or the CKAN knowledge platform, or for developers as an API (application programming interface), with more extensions planned for 2015 and 2016.
Climate Tagger is a joint tool of the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group (CKB), developed by REEEP with support from key donors, partners and expert subject matter contributors.
