Use Cases

Case 1 - To organise a previously unsearchable document database

Your organisation has amassed a vast, valuable storehouse of electronic documents. Unfortunately, they are not particularly well-ordered or categorised. They also lack tagging for online searchability, so visitors to your own website have no effective way of finding and accessing the wealth of information that is already there.

One possible way to deal with the problem might be to hire a couple of interns to sift through every individual document and tag each of them manually. But each person uses their own personal vocabulary in describing concepts, so you will likely end up with a wildly inconsistent set of terms. And the human factor also means that they might read superficially and miss some terms completely.

But now, there is a faster, easier and more reliable way of making your storehouse of documents searchable - and findable! The climatetagger API can tag all of your reports, articles and scientific papers instantly. Since the system relies on a thesaurus with clearly defined terms and interrelationships, it will automatically use a consistent set of keywords to describe content. This means you can place documents in useful clusters, make them all accessible to others and increase the impact of your work.

Several organisations in the clean energy field are already using the climatetagger API to improve document tagging and more are looking at the best way to integrate it into their systems at the moment.

Case 2 - To cross-link your own resources

Your web portal offers a vast amount of online resources. They're actually organised and categorised quite well, but no two documents are cross-linked with each other.

The climatetagger API will instantly index all of your resources and can create a simple application to automatically suggest related content from your own pool of documents.

For example, OpenEI has already built a widget to suggest related articles to their readers, helping them to find what they're looking for.

Case 3 - To cross-link your resources with external documents

As in the scenario above, your portal already offers a wealth of resources. But you're also aware that there are many external resources available other sites; ones that could hugely increase value and understanding for your own users.

The climatetagger API can offer suggestions for further reading from 3rd parties who have already used the system to tag their own resources. This content pool of indexed resources is growing daily, and with it, the ability to offer your users further reading suggestions that match their interests.

At the same time, you can drastically increase the outreach of your own resources by choosing to allow them to be part of this growing content pool. The original source of a document will always be clear to users, and the expert audience for your documents is widened significantly.

Case 4 - To offers definitions, synonyms and links

You work hard to offer your users up-to-date relevant information – but at the same time you know that misunderstandings are not unusual when trying to describe a complex topic.

By integrating the reegle API into your publishing environment, you can offer your users a simple system that extracts particular topics from your articles and offers definitions, synonyms and links to open resources such as Wikipedia.

For instance, the Eldis development knowledge platform is using this system to offer their users a “what do we mean by” info box that includes definitions and synonyms retrieved from the climatetagger API.

Case 5 - Multiple language tagging

Your website is offered in multiple languages. To accurately tag your resources, you would need to hire multiple native-speakers with expertise in clean energy or climate change topics – a time-consuming and costly undertaking!

The climatetagger API can automatically extract quality-assured keywords from original documents in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and German.

You can connect related resources within and across languages, and offer your users an intuitive structure for retrieving documents. The climatetagger API helps you by semantically scanning your resources and extracting the most relevant keywords and geographic location.

Case 6 - Add depth to your platform with suitable 3rd party resources

Your platform is a useful gateway to a wealth of information, but you offer only a limited amount of original research.

The climatetagger API can add depth to your platform. Define precisely what concepts and terms are relevant for your own users, and they can receive matching documents from our ever-increasing content pool directly on your website.
