.rdf file extension
- Resource Description Framework file.
A .rdf file provides information about resources on the web. It is primarily
intended as a means of providing metadata about web resources, such as (but
not limited to) title, author, modification date, copyright and licensing
A .rdf file is an XML style style, and as such it can be viewed using a text-editor (although that may not give the most intuitive view of the file contents). .rdf files are intended as a means of passing and exchanging information (about resources) to applications which can then process that information.
The specification for .rdf files was developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
