Definition Edit

Machine readable data are

digital information stored in a format enabling the information to be processed and analyzed by computer. These formats allow electronic data to be as usable as possible. Examples of machine readable data include formats that may be readily imported into spreadsheet and database applications. In contrast, computer files that are simply image reproductions of print disclosures or that contain only unstructured narrative text generally do not represent machine readable formats.[1]
