The Rock Art Database uses a semantic structure for keywords and tags and cluster the keywords and tags into Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives. Nouns generally describe the physical or meta-physical content of a rock art site, while verbs generally describe movements and activities with the rock art depictions.

Example: Tall giraffe eating from a tree would have the keywords ‘tall’ (adjective), ‘giraffe’ and ‘tree’ (noun), ‘eat’ (verb).
