Structured Data

Structured Data is data that conforms to a data model so that it is easily decipherable by a computer program.

Structured data is organized in a way that makes it easy to search, query, and analyze. Each piece of data is stored in a specific field or column, and the fields and columns are organized into tables or records. Structured data can be easily imported and exported, and can be integrated with other systems and applications, thus making it more versatile and easy to use than unstructured data.

Sources of structured data include:

  • Databases
  • Spreadsheets
  • Online forms
  • Log files
