A defined way or layout of representing and structuring data in a computer file, blob, string, message, or elsewhere. The main focus in EDAM lies on formats as means of structuring data exchanged between different tools or resources. The serialisation, compression, or encoding of concrete data formats/models is not in scope of EDAM. Format 'is format of' Data.
