GoodRelations - The Web Vocabulary for E-Commerce

This is the archive of the goodrelations dicussion list

GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.

[goodrelations] GoodRelations in RDFa in HTML, Microdata, RDF/XML, Turtle, dataRSS, N3, OData, and GData

Dear all:

It is not widely known that GoodRelations-compliant data can be 
published in a variety of syntactial variants. The most popular choice 
is RDFa in HTML/XHTML Web content and RDF/XML for data dump files. 
However, it is easily possible to use any of the following formats 
depending on your needs and middleware:

    * RDFa in HTML
    * RDF/XML
    * Microdata
    * Turtle
    * dataRSS
    * NTriples
    * OData
    * GData

I compiled a list of examples at


We do not yet have those for OData and GData, but this is just because 
there is currently no tooling available to generate that automatically.

A lot of conversion work can be simplified using the following tools:

    * *Microdata* to RDF in Turtle: http://foolip.org/microdatajs/live/
    * *RDFa* to RDF/XML, Turtle, NTriples: http://www.w3.org/2007/08/pyRdfa/
    * *RDF/XML* to Notation 3 (including N-Triples and Turtle):
    * *Notation 3 *(including N-Triples and Turtle)to RDF/XML:
    * *RDF/XML or Notation 3* (including N-Triples and Turtle) to RDFa:
    * *RDF/XML or Notation 3* (including N-Triples and Turtle) to
      dataRSS: http://www.ebusiness-unibw.org/tools/rdf2datarss/
