Techopedia Explains Triple Tag

Triple tags were initially designed to work with geotagging services as a way of adding geolocation data to an element - typically images and other multimedia files. A triple tag syntax includes a namespace, predicate and value. A namespace is used to define a tag's property; a predicate specifies the property of a namespace and a value may be a numeric string.

For example, a geotagging syntax, geo:long=value, is a type of triple tag where "geo" is the namespace; "long" is the predicate and the value contains a numeric string.
