I have a question. I’m a travel writer and of course I know the schema Article and/or Blogpost BUT I often make articles that are solely about an touristtrip itinerary. 

The TouristTrip schema will be suitable for this as well?  I won’t have an offer but everything else is the same.


Also, will microdata be allright over json? I ask because sometimes I update articles and I would need to copy text then from the body also into the json (change it in 2 places). There is no way I can do this automatic at the moment. Microdate inside the html tags would be much more easy in this case.

None as far as I know. But there may be applications beyond Google that are not publicised. 


E.g. Google can make modest use of all schema.org <http://schema.org>  markup but we have no specific features that exploit it, by contrast with markup for Events, Reviews, Articles, Job postings, Datasets etc etc.


By analogy, the schemas for jobs and for datasets preceded Google Search product features in those areas by a number of years. Some schema types (e.g. Volcano) have been around since 2011 with no dedicated (Google) features using them.

That sounds great! What systems or tools support this schema so far?

This is not only relevant for traditional search results listings but also for other discovery 'products' such as voice search, knowledge panels etc.
