Resource Description Framework (RDF)

Impact Centre of Competence

The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a family of World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) specifications, originally designed as a metadata data model, which has come to be used as a general method of modelling information through a variety of syntax formats. The purpose of RDF is to provide an encoding and interpretation mechanism to
online resources so that they are described in a way that particular, defined software can understand. See also: Schema; Metadata.
