PropertyValue Type

A property-value pair, e.g. representing a feature of a product or place. Use the 'name' property for the name of the property. If there is an additional human-readable version of the value, put that into the 'description' property.\n\n Always use specific schema.org properties when a) they exist and b) you can populate them. Using PropertyValue as a substitute will typically not trigger the same effect as using the original, specific property.

Own Properties
Properties of @schema/Property­ValueExpected TypeDescription
@schema/max­Value

The upper value of some characteristic or property.

@schema/measurement­Technique or 

A technique or technology used in a [[Dataset]] (or [[DataDownload]], [[DataCatalog]]), corresponding to the method used for measuring the corresponding variable(s) (described using [[variableMeasured]]). This is oriented towards scientific and scholarly dataset publication but may have broader applicability; it is not intended as a full representation of measurement, but rather as a high level summary for dataset discovery.

For example, if [[variableMeasured]] is: molecule concentration, [[measurementTechnique]] could be: "mass spectrometry" or "nmr spectroscopy" or "colorimetry" or "immunofluorescence".

If the [[variableMeasured]] is "depression rating", the [[measurementTechnique]] could be "Zung Scale" or "HAM-D" or "Beck Depression Inventory".

If there are several [[variableMeasured]] properties recorded for some given data object, use a [[PropertyValue]] for each [[variableMeasured]] and attach the corresponding [[measurementTechnique]].

@schema/min­Value

The lower value of some characteristic or property.

@schema/property­ID or 

A commonly used identifier for the characteristic represented by the property, e.g. a manufacturer or a standard code for a property. propertyID can be (1) a prefixed string, mainly meant to be used with standards for product properties; (2) a site-specific, non-prefixed string (e.g. the primary key of the property or the vendor-specific id of the property), or (3) a URL indicating the type of the property, either pointing to an external vocabulary, or a Web resource that describes the property (e.g. a glossary entry). Standards bodies should promote a standard prefix for the identifiers of properties from their standards.

@schema/unit­Code or 

The unit of measurement given using the UN/CEFACT Common Code (3 characters) or a URL. Other codes than the UN/CEFACT Common Code may be used with a prefix followed by a colon.

@schema/unit­Text

A string or text indicating the unit of measurement. Useful if you cannot provide a standard unit code for <a href='unitCode'>unitCode</a>.

@schema/value or 

The value of the quantitative value or property value node.\n\n* For [[QuantitativeValue]] and [[MonetaryAmount]], the recommended type for values is 'Number'.\n* For [[PropertyValue]], it can be 'Text;', 'Number', 'Boolean', or 'StructuredValue'.\n* Use values from 0123456789 (Unicode 'DIGIT ZERO' (U+0030) to 'DIGIT NINE' (U+0039)) rather than superficially similiar Unicode symbols.\n* Use '.' (Unicode 'FULL STOP' (U+002E)) rather than ',' to indicate a decimal point. Avoid using these symbols as a readability separator.

@schema/value­Reference or 

A secondary value that provides additional information on the original value, e.g. a reference temperature or a type of measurement.

Inherited Properties
Properties inherited from @schema/ThingExpected TypeDescription
@schema/additional­Type

An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.

@schema/alternate­Name

An alias for the item.

@schema/description

A description of the item.

@schema/disambiguating­Description

A sub property of description. A short description of the item used to disambiguate from other, similar items. Information from other properties (in particular, name) may be necessary for the description to be useful for disambiguation.

@schema/identifier or 

The identifier property represents any kind of identifier for any kind of [[Thing]], such as ISBNs, GTIN codes, UUIDs etc. Schema.org provides dedicated properties for representing many of these, either as textual strings or as URL (URI) links. See background notes for more details.

@schema/image or 

An image of the item. This can be a [[URL]] or a fully described [[ImageObject]].

@schema/main­Entity­Of­Page or 

Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See background notes for details.

@schema/name

The name of the item.

@schema/potential­Action

Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.

@schema/same­As

URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Wikidata entry, or official website.

@schema/subject­Of or 

A CreativeWork or Event about this Thing.

@schema/url

URL of the item.
