JSON-LD : JSON for Linked Data

Submitted Jun 20, 2013

Introduction to Linked-Data and JSON-LD


JSON-LD is a lightweight Linked Data format that gives a data context. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based on the already successful JSON format and provides a way to help JSON data interoperate at Web-scale. This makes JSON-LD an ideal interchange language for JavaScript environments, Web service, and unstructured databases such as CouchDB and MongoDB.


  • An open-mind
  • Basic understanding of JSON
  • Love for the web and data
