Standard taxonomy of products XML, RDF and CVS file to download . (provided by google)

The Google product taxonomy is a tree of categories that describe product families. At the highest level, it is arranged into a few verticals, which refer to broad categories of products (Electronics, Home & Garden, etc.). The "children" of these broad categories are more specific product families (Electronics > Audio) or specific products (Electronics > Audio > Audio Players & Recorders > MP3 Players).

Now THAT looks handy.

Thanks for the contrib. I haven't tested it yet, but it looks like what, 2500 terms?
I take it this is a translation of this google taxonomy? Good work.
Looks like it's royalty/license free (it's just a list of words after all) and designed for re-use, so that's cool.

I'll see if we can work it into the taxonomy server project. It may be a bit big to be distributed with the module itself ... but is certainly one of the most valid uses of everyday taxonomy that I've seen!

Update, I've actually added (for other reasons) a format reader CSV_ANCESTRY that will happily read the format provided directly from Google itself (or at least a save-as-csv version of it)
I'm now distributing the top two layers of that Google product catalog as a sample in version 2-dev.
Still interested in making sure this file works as an RDF import though. Anyone can download and import it using current methods, which is cool
