Paper Abstract

A corporate information system needs to be as accessible as library content, which implies to organize the content in a logical structure, categorizing it, and using the categories to add metadata to the information. Content Management System (CMS) are an emerging kind software component that manages content, usually making a large use of the web technologies, whose main goals are to allow easy creation, publishing and retrieval of content to fit business needs. The focus of this paper is to describe how we integrated "map" metaphor into a CMS. Where maps are symbolic information and rely on the use of a graphic sign language. A characteristic feature of maps is that their design has traditionally been constrained by the need to create one model of reality for a variety of purposes. The map's primary role as a communication medium involves the application of processes such as selection, classification, displacement, symbolization and graphic exaggeration. A model of the infrastructure is presented and the current prototype of the model is briefly discussed together the currently deployed environment for the cultural heritage information dissemination.
