Note that GoodRelations provides the gr:hasISICv4 and the gr:hasNAICS

properties for linking a gr:BusinessEntity to the proper ISIC/NAICS 
category code for that company.

For a more precise description of the range of skills or products 
offered, one should use the regular gr:Offering pattern, though, because 
a one-dimensional industry classification is pretty much limited.


Definition: The International Standard of Industrial Classification of 
All Economic Activities (ISIC), Revision 4 code for a particular 
Business Entity. See http://unstats.un.org/unsd/cr/registry/isic-4.asp 
for more information. Note: While ISIC codes are sometimes misused for 
classifying products or services, they are designed and suited only for 
classifying business establishments.


Definition: The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) 
code for a particular Business Entity. See 
http://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/ for more details. Note: While NAICS 
codes are sometimes misused for classifying products or services, they 
are designed and suited only for classifying business establishments.
