Shape Trees Specification

This repository contains the specification and supporting documentation for Shape Trees.

Shape trees marry RDF vocabularies, shapes, and resources into "little trees" that provide machine to machine interoperability, combining them into concepts that humans can easily comprehend, such as medical records, notes, notebooks, calendars, and financial records.

For applications that operate on more complex and interconnected resources, Shape Trees express the layout of those resources and associate them with their respective shapes.

Shape Trees are a W3C Solid Community Group work effort.

Changes to the Shape Trees specification and supporting documentation are reviewed by the editors:


Use the standard fork, branch, and pull request workflow to propose changes to the specification. Please make branch names informative (e.g. by including the issue or bug number).
