Digital information consists of sequences of numbers that are selections. So far, these are defined by context. We can globalize this by using an efficient global pointer (UL) as “context”. The article explains new globally identified and defined “Domain Vectors” (DVs) for transporting digital information. They have the structure “UL plus sequence of numbers”, where UL is an efficient identifier and global pointer (link) to the unified online definition of the sequence of numbers. Thus, the format of the number sequence and its meaning is defined online. This opens up far-reaching new possibilities for the efficient exchange, comparison and search of information. It can form the basis for a new global framework that improves the reproducibility, search, and exchange of data across systems, borders, and languages.
