A taxonomy is an information organisation tool, constructed to enable the user to gain an understanding of, and navigate around, available information by means of a formal structure (arrangements) and labels (names) to aid in locating it. A good taxonomy will take into account the importance of separating elements of a group into subgroups that are mutually exclusive, unambiguous, and taken together, include all possibilities.
