Abstract

Resources on the web can be identified by any (registered) URI scheme and can be represented by any (registered) media type. In many cases, applications establish specific (i.e., typed) relations between the resources they are concerned with, which can either be under their control or controlled by another authority. A common usage pattern for associating resources is to have resources that are descriptions of other resources. This specification registers the 'describes' link relation, which allows applications to represent the fact that one resource is a description of another resource.

                    The 'describes' Link Relation Type

Abstract

   This specification defines the 'describes' link relation type that    allows resource representations to indicate that they are describing    another resource.  In contexts where applications want to associate    described resources and description resources, and want to build    services based on these associations, the 'describes' link relation    type provides the opposite direction of the 'describedby' link    relation type, which already is a registered link relation type.
