• The figure below is a syntax diagram of the structure of SharePoint Foundation REST service URIs. You can read more about the SharePoint Foundation REST service here.

    Syntax diagrams are a useful way of illustrating linear data structures. Things like:

    • REST URI composition
    • API signatures
    • JSON, OData, or other XML-based data notation

    You can find out more about syntax diagrams at this Wikipedia entry, see some examples using JSON here, and see some more examples in the OData specifications.
