Tellura - the structured information people

We help organisations to build meaningful content and information architectures. We create taxonomies, controlled vocabularies, thesauri and ontologies.

Advice and consultancy

With decades of experience building information services on the web and elsewhere, we understand information architecture, content structure, data classification and more. We can help you to do the same.

Taxonomy design and modelling

We have been designing information taxonomies for more than 15 years, and for clients ranging from education to engineering. We know the market and can help you to choose the taxonomy system that works for you.

Management and best practice guidance

Like any other other information asset, taxonomies need care and feeding. We have worked with many clients to help them implement best practices for taxonomy management, standards and governance.

Linking information to information

We show organisations how to connect content with taxonomies to improve content discovery and re-use, and how to use linked data to create a knowledge network of information objects and classification schemes.

Clients, partners and news

We work with clients of all sizes and across many sectors, industries and countries. Here's a selection of our work. When there's interesting news, that is here too.
