A Simple Example
A simple example of a JSON object with added semantics:
- "@context": "http://purl.org/jsonld/Person", "@subject": "http://dbpedia.org/resource/John_Lennon", "name": "John Lennon", "birthday": "10-09", "member": "http://dbpedia.org/resource/The_Beatles"
The example above describes a person whose name is John Lennon. The difference between regular JSON and JSON-LD is that the JSON-LD object above uniquely identifies itself on the Web and can be used, without introducing ambiguity, across every Web site, Web services and databases in operation today.
If you would like to play around with JSON-LD markup, you may do so here:
