I am bouncing around a couple of projects that involve collecting
storing information about Corporations and States.
Is there a already existing schema that will kind of fit this data in
There are many such schemas out there.
As a starting point the LDAPv3 standard defines:
object class 'country':
object class 'organization':
Some more in the COSINE LDAP/X.500 schema:
The kind of data is going to be like taking the the top of of
Corporations and State's
inetOrgPerson data and stuffing it under one tree and bundling public data with it
such as contracts a company have with a state on record.
In general relying on geographic locations for structuring the directory information tree
(DIT) like defined in X.521 already failed years ago. In niche use-cases it might work.
