Uri

 

a canton in Switzerland. Uri has an area of 1,000 sq km and a population of 34,000 (1970). Its capital is Altdorf.

From the ninth to the 13th century, Uri was subject to the monastery of the city of Zürich and to the Hapsburgs. In 1291 it concluded a treaty of perpetual alliance with the cantons of Unterwalden and Schwyz, thus forming the Swiss state. The united cantons achieved independence from the Hapsburgs in 1308, and their independence was strengthened by their victory at Morgarten in 1315. In the late 15th century, Uri became one of the main areas for recruiting Swiss mercenaries into the armies of the Catholic countries of Europe. In the 16th century, Uri and other economically backward cantons opposed the Reformation in Switzerland.

From 1798 to 1803, Uri was part of the Helvetian Republic. During A. V. Suvorov’s Swiss Campaign of September 1799, the Russian Army fought several battles in the canton. In the mid-19th century, Uri joined the reactionary unions known as the League of Sarnen and the Sonderbund. In 1882 a railroad tunnel was constructed under the St. Gotthard Pass.

URI

URI

(Uniform Resource Identifier) The addressing technology for identifying resources on the Internet (or a private intranet). The component of a URI that is most widely heard of is the URL, which is the address of a Web page. However, the Web is being interconnected by its data content, not just one Web page to another, and URIs increasingly refer to data elements on the Web. See RDF and Semantic Web.

In technical documentation from the standards committees, URI is the preferred term and may be used along with its application protocol such as HTTP. Thus, an "HTTP URI" is a URL used to access a Web server (see URI scheme). See URL and URN.
