I want to build a file with all the data of the different presidents of a country. Is there a defined JSON format to represent this data?

For example:

    name: "President A",
    Assumed: '01-01-2014',

    One president per country? Or do you want previous presidents too? What info do you NEED to store about each president? (for instance I see "Assumed" in your example) – Nicolas Raoul Mar 20 '15 at 9:03
  • Another important question: What do you actually intend to do with the data? Will it be used by an application? Do you want to share it? – Patrick Hoefler Mar 20 '15 at 14:02

    Are you looking for an Ontology? – philshem Mar 21 '15 at 6:36
  • I want to store all the presidents of a country, the data that I want to store is the Wikipedia data that appear in the right column. – McSas Mar 23 '15 at 13:08

    @McSas - Ontologies aren't my thing. Please edit your question to make it clear what you are looking for, and then you are more likely to get a good answer. – philshem Mar 25 '15 at 7:23

The following has the data you want, but in an HTML table format. You will need to parse it out of the tables.

    I think that McSas is asking about how to write/organize the data in a file. This is not a data-request, I suspect McSas already has the data, probably from the source you mention or from Wikipedia. – Nicolas Raoul Mar 25 '15 at 3:29
