[Understandable but with some grammatical missteps]
Knowledge Organization (KO) is a field of study that comprises techniques to organize documents, concepts and the relationships between them. KO seeks to increase the interoperability mechanisms and enable these techniques to be used in the media,, worldwide Related fields include information classification, information retrieval, information visualization, and knowledge acquisition.
KO should not be confused with knowledge management(KM), since the latter tends to be focused on organizations, whereas KO has a more general application, less focused on the practical aspects of organizations, whose objectives are more concrete and explicit. Nevertheless, KM is supported by KO, since it represents one of its basic areas of activity.
