+developers

+This
+allows
+organizations

+have
+already
+deployed
+large
+JSON-based
+infrastructure
+to
+add
+meaning
+to
+their
+JSON

+in

+At

+In

+is
+not

+At

+tens,
+if
+not
+hundreds
+of
+potential
+vocabulary
+terms
+that
+may
+be
+used
+across
+an
+application.
+This
+is
+a
+concern
+for
+at
+least
+three
+reasons;
+the
+first
+is
+the
+cognitive
+load
+on
+the
+developer,
+the
+second
+is
+the
+serialized
+size
+of
+the
+context,
+the
+third
+is
+future-proofing
+application
+contexts.
+In
+order
+to
+address
+these
+issues,
+the
+concept
+of
+a
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="prefix" href="#dfn-prefix-1">
+prefix
+</a>
+mechanism
+is
+introduced.
+</p>
+<p>
+A
+<dfn title="prefix" id="dfn-prefix-1">
+prefix
+</dfn>
+is
+a
+compact
+way
+of
+expressing
+a
+base
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="IRI" href="#dfn-iri">
+IRI
+</a>
+to
+a
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="Web_Vocabulary" href="#dfn-web_vocabulary">
+Web
+Vocabulary
+</a>.
+Generally,
+these
+prefixes
+are
+used
+by
+concatenating
+the
+<em>
+prefix
+</em>
+and
+a
+<em>
+term
+</em>
+separated
+by
+a
+colon
+(
+<code>:
+</code>
+).
+The
+prefix
+is
+a
+short
+string
+that
+identifies
+a
+particular
+Web
+vocabulary.
+For
+example,
+the
+prefix
+<code>
+foaf
+</code>
+may
+be
+used
+as
+a
+short
+hand
+for
+the
+Friend-of-a-Friend
+Web
+Vocabulary,
+which
+is
+identified
+using
+the
+IRI
+<code>
+http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/
+</code>.
+A
+developer
+may
+append
+any
+of
+the
+FOAF
+Vocabulary
+terms
+to
+the
+end
+of
+the
+prefix
+to
+specify
+a
+short-hand
+version
+of
+the
+full
+IRI
+for
+the
+vocabulary
+term.
+For
+example,
+<code>
+foaf:name
+</code>
+would
+be
+expanded
+out
+to
+the
+IRI
+<code>
+http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name
+</code>.
+Instead
+of
+having
+to
+remember
+and
+type
+out
+the
+entire
+IRI,
+the
+developer
+can
+instead
+use
+the
+prefix
+in
+their
+JSON-LD
+markup.
+</p>
+<p>
+The
+ability
+to
+use
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="prefix" href="#dfn-prefix-1">
+prefix
+</a>
+es
+reduces
+the
+need
+for
+developers
+to
+declare
+every
+vocabulary
+term
+that
+they
+intend
+to
+use
+in
+the
+JSON-LD
+context.
+This
+reduces
+document
+serialization
+size
+because
+every
+vocabulary
+term
+need
+not
+be
+declared
+in
+the
+context.
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="Prefix" href="#dfn-prefix-1">
+Prefix
+</a>
+also
+reduce
+the
+cognitive
+load
+on
+the
+developer.
+It
+is
+far
+easier
+to
+remember
+<code>
+foaf:name
+</code>
+than
+it
+is
+to
+remember
+<code>
+http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name
+</code>.
+The
+use
+of
+prefixes
+also
+ensures
+that
+a
+context
+document
+does
+not
+have
+to
+be
+updated
+in
+lock-step
+with
+an
+externally
+defined
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="Web_Vocabulary" href="#dfn-web_vocabulary">
+Web
+Vocabulary
+</a>.
+Without
+prefixes,
+a
+developer
+would
+need
+to
+keep
+their
+application
+context
+terms
+in
+lock-step
+with
+an
+externally
+defined
+Web
+Vocabulary.
+Rather,
+by
+just
+declaring
+the
+Web
+Vocabulary
+prefix,
+one
+can
+use
+new
+terms
+as
+they're
+declared
+without
+having
+to
+update
+the
+application's
+JSON-LD
+context.

+this
+type
+of
+node
+is
+called
+an
+unlabeled
+node
+or
+a
+blank
+node.
+In
+JSON-LD,
+unlabeled
+node
+identifiers
+are
+automatically
+created
+if
+a
+subject
+is
+not
+specified
+using
+the
+<code>
[email protected]
+</code>
+keyword.
+However,
+authors
+may
+provide
+identifiers
+for
+unlabeled
+nodes
+by
+using
+the
+special
+<code>
+_
+</code>
+(underscore)
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="prefix" href="#dfn-prefix-1">
+prefix
+</a>.
+This
+allows
+to
+reference
+the
+node
+locally
+within
+the
+document
+but
+not
+in
+an
+external
+document.

+The

+This
+practice,
+however,
+is
+usually
+frowned

+If
+a
+developer
+finds

+Normalization
+</h3>
+<p>
+Normalization
+is
+the
+process
+of
+taking
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="JSON-LD_input" href="#dfn-json-ld_input">
+JSON-LD
+input
+</a>
+and
+performing
+a
+deterministic
+transformation
+on
+that
+input
+that
+results
+in
+a
+<a class="tref internalDFN" title="JSON-LD_output" href="#dfn-json-ld_output">
+JSON-LD
+output
+</a>
+that
+any
+conforming
+JSON-LD
+processor
+would
+have
+generated
+given
+the
+same
+input.
+The
+problem
+is
+a
+fairly
+difficult
+technical
+problem
+to
+solve
+because
+it
+requires
+a
+directed
+graph
+to
+be
+ordered
+into
+a
+set
+of
+nodes
+and
+edges
+in
+a
+deterministic
+way.
+This
+is
+easy
+to
+do
+when
+all
+of
+the
+nodes
+have
+unique
+names,
+but
+very
+difficult
+to
+do
+when
+some
+of
+the
+nodes
+are
+not
+labeled.
+</p>
+<p>
+Normalization
+is
+useful
+when
+comparing
+two
+graphs
+against
+one
+another,
+when
+generating
+a
+detailed
+list
+of
+differences
+between
+two
+graphs,
+and
+when
+generating
+a
+cryptographic
+digital
+signature
+for
+information
+contained
+in
+a
+graph
+or
+when
+generating
+a
+hash
+of
+the
+information
+contained
+in
+a
+graph.
