Structured Data Markup Visualization, Validation and Testing Tools

Tools for testing structured data markup and rich snippet display, including microformats and marked up in microdata, RDFa, RDFa Lite and JSON-LD.

When testing vocabularies and schemas, note that error messages from validators may be related to the usage requirements of only that specific data consumer, especially validation error pertaining to required fields or required properties.
