What is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)?

A Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) is a string of characters used to identify the name of a resource, such as a document or image. Identifying a source enables interaction with representations of the resource over a network, which is typically the Internet, using specific protocols. The most common form of URI is the Uniform Resource Locator (URL), which is frequently referred to as the web address.
