DITA maps enable the scalable reuse of content across multiple contexts. They can be used by information architects, writers, and publishers to plan, develop, and deliver content.
DITA maps support the following uses:
@collection-typeattribute is set. On output, these relationships might be expressed as related links or the hierarchy of a table of contents (TOC).
<topicref>elements or specializations of
<topicref>elements, such as
<keydef>element is a convenience element; it is a specialized type of a
<topicref>element with the following attributes:
@processing-roleattribute with a default value of "resource-only".
@conkeyrefattribute. Elements within a map structure that specify a
@keyscopeattribute create a new context for key reference resolution. Key references within such elements are resolved against the set of effective key definitions for that scope.
Specialized maps can provide additional semantics beyond those of organization, linking, and indirection. For example, the subjectScheme map specialization adds the semantics of taxonomy and ontology definition.
