An entity typically corresponds to a table in a relational database; an entityâ€(tm)s attributes, in turn, correspond to a tableâ€(tm)s columns.

The existence of a thing as contrasted with its attributes. In the context of entity-relationship modeling, an entity is a business object that is eventually represented as a table.
Object or feature about which information is stored. The information describes where the entity is (location — stored as points, lines, or polygons) and what the entity is (identity — e.g., lake, tree, house). An entity is usually a person, place, thing, or event. It may be tangible or intangible and can be further defined by attribute data.

An entity is a human person, a non-human legal entity (e.g. a company, a government), a virtual artifact (e.g. a computer process, an application, a text file), a tangible object (e.g. a book, a device, a tree), a location (e.g. a town, a CPU memory address), or a grouping of other entities (e.g. an organization). In order for it's existence to be acknowledged, an entity needs to have at least one unique identity.
