The Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM) is a data reference model for the exchange of information within the justice and public safety communities. The Global JXDM is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) Office of Justice Programs (OJP), with development supported by the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative's (Global) XML Structure Task Force (GXSTF). It is a body of rules and concepts that provides a common language with which these agencies can describe, structure, and share information on justice/public safety matters and offenders. It integrates the data names and structures from the Global Justice XML Data Dictionary into a database. From this database, an XML schema specification can be generated that consistently represents the semantics and structure of common data elements and types required for exchanging information within the justice and public safety communities.
