Semi-structured data

Semi-structured data are data that contain entities that partially conform to a schema, or contain elements internally consistent enough to derive a partial schema.

Example of semi-structured data

	{ name: "John Doe", age: 27 },
	{ name: "Jane Doe", age: 28, height: 66 },

Note that the common elements name and age can be used to derive a schema, however height is unique to the second record and thus creates ambiguity in what could otherwise be a rigidly defined schema.
