ArchiMate is an EA modelling language. EA modelling is a practice in which business and IT are modelled together in order to model the inerconnections between business and IT in an organization. For this purpose, ArchiMate differs between several types of nodes. I will not present all here, as this will go too much into detail but focus on the most relevant ones.
1. Business: The business level contains elements which model, as the names suggests, the business level of the organization. Here you can model aspects like business functions provided by the organization, business actors which are somehow related to the functions, business roles which define the role of business actors, business interfaces, etc. In ArchiMate business elements are per default colored yellowish.
2. Application: The application level shows the software side of the offered business services etc. Here you can find elements like application components composed of several application services and offering application interfaces, etc. So here we model for example the software view of payment system which is used in the enterprise to offer a business service. The application elements are modeled in a blueish color by default.
3. Technology & Physical: This layer models the hardware on which the applications of the application level runs. Technology and physical elements are modeled in a greenish color.

As the description above shows an ArchiMate model is typically modelled following a clear layer architecture. On the top most level the business level, as the most abstract layer, is modelled. On the next level below the business elements the application layer is set. On the lowermost level the technology and physical elements will be displayed. Thus, the application layer is like the interface between the technology level on which the business services are physically offered, and the business layer, which shows somewhat the "client view" of the services offered by an enterprise.
You can see this layer structure also in both models in the develop and develop-full branches.
The semantics in an ArchiMate model are built up by element types on the one hand, e.g. business actors modelling actors and business services modelling services on the business level, as well as relationship in between models. These relationships are:
