The Information Coding Classification (ICC) is a classification system covering almost all extant 6500 knowledge fields (knowledge domains). Its conceptualization goes beyond the scope of the well known library classification systems, such as Dewey Decimal Classification (DCC), Universal Decimal Classification (UDC), and Library of Congress Classification (LCC), by extending also to knowledge systems that so far have not afforded to classify literature. ICC actually presents a flexible universal ordering system for both literature and other kinds of information, set out as knowledge fields. From a methodological point of view, ICC differs from the above-mentioned systems along the following three lines:

dbo:abstract
  • Die Information Coding Classification (ICC) ist ein Klassifikationssystem von fast allen bekannten ca. 6500 Wissensgebieten. Es enthält auch solche Wissensgebiete, die literarisch im Allgemeinen nicht erfasst werden. Damit geht es über den Rahmen der bekannten Bibliotheksklassifikationssysteme wie die Dewey Decimal Classification, die Universal Decimal Classification und die Library of Congress Classification hinaus. Daher kann es als universales System zur Klassierung von Literatur oder anderen Informationen nach Wissensgebieten dienen. (de)
  • The Information Coding Classification (ICC) is a classification system covering almost all extant 6500 knowledge fields (knowledge domains). Its conceptualization goes beyond the scope of the well known library classification systems, such as Dewey Decimal Classification (DCC), Universal Decimal Classification (UDC), and Library of Congress Classification (LCC), by extending also to knowledge systems that so far have not afforded to classify literature. ICC actually presents a flexible universal ordering system for both literature and other kinds of information, set out as knowledge fields. From a methodological point of view, ICC differs from the above-mentioned systems along the following three lines: 1. * Its main classes are not based on disciplines but on nine live stages of development, so-called ontical levels. 2. * It breaks them roughly down into hierarchical steps by further nine categories which makes decimal number coding possible. 3. * The contents of a knowledge field is earmarked via a digital position scheme, which makes the first hierarchical step refer to the nine ontical levels (object areas as subject categories), and the second hierarchical step refer to nine functionally ordered form categories. Respective knowledge fields permit to step down by the same principle to a third and forth level, and even further to a fifth and sixth level. Finally, knowledge field subdivisions will have to conform to said digital position scheme.Hence, for a given knowledge field identical codes will mark identical categories under respective numbers of the coding system. This mnemotechnical aspect of the system helps memorizing and straightaway retrieving the whereabouts of respective interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary fields. The first two hierarchical levels may be regarded as a top- or upper ontology for ontologies and other applications. The terms of the first three hierarchical levels were set out in German and English in Wissensorganisation. Entwicklung, Aufgabe, Anwendung, Zukunft, on pp. 82 to 100. It was published in 2014 and available so far only in German. In the meantime, also the French terms of the knowlwdge fields have been collected.Competence for maintenance and further development rests with the German Chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO) e.V.
