Structured data

Digitisation for construction product manufacturers: a plain language guide, published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2021 states:

Structured data has been defined and organised in such a manner that it’s searchable, immediately identifiable and machine readable within an electronic file. It must be:

  • Defined in a standardised way, for example, identified by naming conventions.
  • Presented in a standardised format.
  • Transferrable and translatable between users of the data and their software choices.
