Information Architecture & Standards

This work strand created the content and structure necessary to link together services between local authorities as well as with those from central government. The aim was to provide standards for the organisation, classification and representation of web content, as well as to build these into the products being delivered. The following list shows the wide range of standards and content generated and how they were integrated into other LAWs outputs.

  • Compliance and consistency with the Government's Interoperability Framework (eGIF).
Local Government Category List Metadata for the web
Website Information architecture standards
Web Accessibility Standards
Metadata standards for syndication
  • Standard established 
  • Syndication standard built into portal functionality
