Semi-structured Data

Semi-structured data is that which cannot be stored in a relational database but has some structural properties.

This includes email messages, where the header information is structured (to, from, subject, date, IP addresses) but the body text is unstructured. Other examples include Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) transmission of documents, social media messages with hashtags, and data in CSV, XML, and JSON formats.
