Hi Francois,

simple use the GoodRelations properties

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#depth
http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#width
http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#height
http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#weight


in combination with schema.org - as shown below:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product" itemid="#model">
  <span itemprop="name">ACME Electric Anvil</span>
...
  Weight: <div itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#weight" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="hasValue">50</span> kg
      <meta itemprop="hasUnitOfMeasurement" content="KGM" >
  </div>
  Width: <div itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#width" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="hasValue">10</span>
      <meta itemprop="hasUnitOfMeasurement" content="CMT" > cm
  Depth: <div itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#depth" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="hasValue">30</span>
      <meta itemprop="hasUnitOfMeasurement" content="CMT" > cm
  Height: <div itemprop="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#height" itemscope 
       itemtype="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#QuantitativeValue">
      <span itemprop="hasValue">20</span>
      <meta itemprop="hasUnitOfMeasurement" content="CMT" > cm
</div>

The example is from:

http://www.heppnetz.de/ontologies/goodrelations/v1.html#QuantitativeValue

Instead of CMT for centimeters, you can use any UN/CEFACT code, e.g. INH for inches etc.
Same for the weight
