PropertyExpected TypeDescription
Properties from Property
domainIncludes Class Relates a property to a class that is (one of) the type(s) the property is expected to be used on.
inverseOf Property Relates a property to a property that is its inverse. Inverse properties relate the same pairs of items to each other, but in reversed direction. For example, the 'alumni' and 'alumniOf' properties are inverseOf each other. Some properties don't have explicit inverses; in these situations RDFa and JSON-LD syntax for reverse properties can be used.
rangeIncludes Class Relates a property to a class that constitutes (one of) the expected type(s) for values of the property.
supersededBy Enumeration  or
Class  or
Property 
Relates a term (i.e. a property, class or enumeration) to one that supersedes it.
Properties from Thing
additionalType URL An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.
alternateName Text An alias for the item.
description Text A short description of the item.
image URL  or
ImageObject 
An image of the item. This can be a URL or a fully described ImageObject.
mainEntityOfPage URL  or
CreativeWork 
Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described.

See background notes for details.
Inverse property: mainEntity.
name Text The name of the item.
potentialAction Action Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.
sameAs URL URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Freebase page, or official website.
url URL URL of the item.
