The tight relationship between URIs and URLs can lead to the misconception of assuming that only web documents can be resources. gov/ identifies a web document that describes the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. But URIs can be minted as well for other resources apart from web documents, such as the Eiffel Tower (a building), Paris (a city), Leonardo da Vinci (a person), 2012 Olympics (an event) or Baroque (a concept). org/resource/Paris is a URI that identifies the city of Paris.
