The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an XML-based architecture for authoring, producing, and delivering information. Although its main applications have so far been in technical publications, DITA is also used for other types of documents such as policies and procedures.


  1. DITA was used for creation, publication and maintenance of many SNOMED International guidance documents prior to migration of the documents to Confluence.  
  2. Since early 2016 DITA is no longer used by SNOMED International for any active work. This glossary entry is only included for backward compatibility.
