TreeList Editor is a powerful tool for creating, manipulating, reviewing
and displaying hierarchical data.
It uses the power of WYSIWYG editing in an easy-to-use graphical
environment — all with point-and-click and drag-and-drop ease.
TreeList Editor can also output hierarchy text (View
example) and diagrams (
) to web pages. The diagrams are drawn in SVG format, and
may be zoomed without loss of resolution (View
example that requires
Add-In to browser). They may be imported into graphics packages
such as CorelDraw.
Compare and Cross-Edit
TreeList Editor provides a familiar visual environment to work
in. Use it to enter
and edit data, rearrange a single hierarchical structure, or compare and
cross-edit two related hierarchical structures side-by-side.
A Tool for Creating, Maintaining, Distributing and Exploring
Standardised Hierarchical Vocabularies
The Internet provides unlimited opportunities for the sharing of
scientific information. For successful integration of information
from different sources, however, it is essential that the same (standard)
vocabularies are used for different data sets.
Since many scientific vocabularies are hierarchically structured,
TreeList Editor is a very useful tool for anyone interested in working
with standardised science languages.
TreeLists (hierarchies) created with TreeList Editor can be easily
transferred to co-workers. Unfamiliar classification systems can be
easily explored, annotated, and adjusted, using TreeList Editor.
Also, most importantly, the database format used by TreeList Editor
makes its data sets easy to program into existing or new software
In mid-November, the entire
Micronex Taxonomy of Minerals will be
available for download in TreeList Editor format from this website.
