AP Metadata Services

AP News Taxonomy is a comprehensive classification system, including standardized subjects, people, organizations, geographic locations and more, all designed with news content in mind. Frequent updates ensure timeliness, and a rich network of semantic relationships between concepts enables creative solutions for content linking, search and discovery.

AP Tagging Service receives your news content and automatically enriches it with all the relevant metadata tags from the News Taxonomy. This smart service goes well beyond mere text extraction; it uses human-created semantic rules to understand your content and identify the most pertinent concepts and topics.
