Resource Description Framework (RDF)

What is Resource Description Framework (RDF) ?

The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a standard for representing and exchanging data on the World Wide Web. It is a flexible and extensible data model that allows for the description of resources and the relationships between them.

RDF is based on the idea of a graph, in which resources are represented as nodes, and the relationships between them are represented as edges. Each resource is identified by a unique URI (Uniform Resource Identifier), and the properties and attributes of the resource are represented as key-value pairs.

RDF is used to represent data in a variety of domains, including information about people, organizations, events, and more. It is often used to represent data in the form of knowledge graphs, which are large, interconnected sets of data that represent real-world concepts and their relationships.

RDF is used in a variety of applications, including data integration, data interoperability, and knowledge management. It is particularly useful for creating data models that are more flexible and expressive than traditional data models, and that can support more complex and sophisticated queries.
