The {{DatatypeProperty}} template can be used to define ontology datatype properties.


| labels                 =
| comments               =
| rdfs:domain            =
| rdfs:range             =
| rdf:type               =
| rdfs:subPropertyOf     =
| owl:equivalentProperty =


  • labels: should be defined to provide a human-readable version of a property's name. Use ISO language code 639-1 (e.g. {{label|en|...}}).
  • comments: should be defined to provide a human-readable description of a property. Use ISO language code 639-1 (e.g. {{comment|en|...}}).
  • rdfs:domain: is used to state that any resource that has a given property is an instance of the stated class. If left empty, owl:Thing is assumed.
  • rdfs:range: is used to state that the values of a property are instances of the stated class.
    • XSD Datatypes: xsd:date, xsd:time, xsd:dateTime, xsd:gYear, xsd:gYearMonth, xsd:gMonth, xsd:gMonthDay, xsd:gDay, xsd:boolean, xsd:string, xsd:integer, xsd:double, xsd:float
    • DBpedia Datatypes
  • rdf:type: currently, only owl:FunctionalProperty is supported.
  • rdfs:subPropertyOf: defines that the property is a subproperty of some other property. Formally this means that if P1 is a subproperty of P2, then the property values of P1 are a subset of the property values of P2.
  • owl:equivalentProperty:

For backwards compatibilty, the following format for labels and comments is also possible but deprecated:

| rdfs:label@en          =
| rdfs:label@..          =
| rdfs:comment@en        =


The definition of the DBpedia ontology property height:

| labels = 
| comments =
| rdfs:range   = Length

It will be rendered to this table:

This is the definition of an ontology property.
