Taxonomies In Elasticsearch


(med) #1

Hi All,

I am currently working on a Project which involves integration of thousands of hierarchical taxonomies that we built .
So the users can search by taxonomies, As an example of hierarchical taxonomies that i use:

Painting>canvas>cotton canvas
Painting>brush
Painting>paintbrush>
Painting>paint>oilpaint
Painting>paint>cerulean
Painting>paint>raw sienna
Painting>paint>yellow ocre
Painting>paint>red ocre
Painting>paint>burnt ocre
Painting>paint>white
Painting>portrait
Painting>landscape

My question how can i integrate thousands of this hierarchical taxonomies in Elasticsearch so user can use it as facets to search in my project ?

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Not sure if it fits your use case but perhaps the hierarchy tokenizer would help?

Thank you Loren for your reply, I don't think so because i will use taxonomies in Skos format as external source because it is voluminous taxonomies that i built and then i need to index it in Elasticsearch to use it as facets or agregations !

Thanks
