This document discusses, among other things, systems, devices, and methods for implementing a content provider using at least one structured data attribute, with an integer, float, string, or date value or the like. One or more such structured data attributes is obtained from a user query, a user attribute, a user selection, a document or other content resource, or an instance within an interactive user-provider dialog. One or more such structured data attributes is auto-mapped to a set of ordered concepts in an at least partially ordered taxonomy of a knowledge map representing a multidimensional organization of such concepts. A structured data attribute and/or an ordered concept is used to control the dialog, constrain a user's search, or order and present search results, either alone, or in combination with nonstructured (e.g., textual) data and/or one or more concepts that is not ordered using a structured data parameter.
