I've created the first version of the JSON-LD context for the vCard
Ontology. You can find it at


At the moment it includes also all deprecated elements. I wasn't sure what
to do with them... should we drop them?

I've also created a JSON-LD serialization of the ontology itself which you
can find at


I've already fixed the language-tagged/typed string issue, converted
booleans and integers to native types, and turned the
owl:UnionOf/intersectionOf constructs to sets instead of lists. I think it
would make sense to take this JSON-LD version as reference and generate out
of it the Turtle and RDF/XML versions.
