      1. The structural design of shared information environments.Template:SfnTemplate:Rp
      2. The art and science of organizing and labeling web sites, intranets, online communities, and software to support findability and usability.[1][2]

      4. The combination of organization, labeling, search and navigation systems within websites and intranets.Template:SfnTemplate:Rp
      5. Extracting required parameters/data of Engineering Designs in the process of creating a knowledge-base linking different systems and standards.

      7. A subset of data architecture where usable data (a.k.a. information) is constructed in and designed or arranged in a fashion most useful or empirically holistic to the users of this data.
