Database of attributes,

Now there are several additional information included.

— A unique id for every attribute of a version of a data model (i.e.

— The unique id of the parent attribute (whenever there is a parent) (i.e.

— The @context link of the attributes pointing to an existing web page with some details about the attribute (i.e. https://smartdatamodels.org/postOfficeBoxNumber)


Now the second level of attributes is available in the specification document for all the languages (i.e. https://github.com/smart-data-models/dataModel.User/blob/master/Activity/doc/spec.md)

Context file

Now the second and subsequent levels of the attributes have URI entries in the @context included in the file context.jsonld file in every subject (i.e. https://github.com/smart-data-models/dataModel.Environment/blob/master/context.jsonld)

The URI of the data models points to a existing web page (i.e. https://smartdatamodels.org/dataModel.Environment/ambientNoiseTSA)
