TopicView is a project by Morpheus on behalf of the Amsterdam police to bridge the practical and semantic boundaries between their information systems.

That is to say it is a solution that allows existing systems to remain in place, but creating bridges between them to enable the police to make more effective use of the information they do have and to share information across systems.

Do be aware that I used Google’s translate feature to read the homepage of this project so some of my appreciation of it is based on surmises based on my knowledge of topic maps.

I did stumble in some places, such as where the translation reports: Bandages stay hidden for Verbanden blijven verborgen.*

Perhaps fuller information will appear in the future.
*I suspect way off base but since it is a police topic map, I would assume that sources of information can remain hidden, even as the information they provide is shown.
