Taxonomy Packages

Taxonomy Packages provide a standardised mechanism for providing documentation about the content of a taxonomy. This can include information about the name, version and publisher of the taxonomy, as well as a list of the "entry points" available within the taxonomy. Taxonomy Packages can also provide URL remappings, enabling XBRL tools to be automatically configured for off-line use.

The accompanying Report Packages Working Group Note documents a preferred approach for the inclusion of XBRL reports within a Taxonomy Package.
