Noise pollution data model and AirQualityForecast published at Environment subject

The Noise Pollution data model and the AirQualityForecast have been published on the Environment subject. The first one merges specific and punctual noise measurements (coming, e.g. from NoiseLevelObservation entities) into average parameters referred to city areas, providing more city-related data about noise pollution status and evolution. The second one helps to store the forecast about the quality of air for a specific period.

Help to early contributors

If have approached the Smart Data Models Program (SDM) for the first time and you want to become a contributor there are some technical concepts that you need to know about the elements compiled at SDM.

Once checked this presentation maybe you want to review the contribution manual


Using Smart Data Models has its rewards

Smart Data Models are openly licensed. It means that nobody is asking you for anything to use them. Indeed it is possible to modify the models and share them.

Anyhow if you are interested in getting some dissemination because you are using them, check the new menu entry (I am already using it!) with a form in which you can be listed as an adopter and get in return dissemination on LinkedIn, Twitter, and in the smart data models blog.

New Structure of the main menu

After growing in options and service, it was necessary to update the main menu (not only to make it more legible), but also to make it more natural.

Explore the tools section where all the available services are listed together

Documentation contains everything related to the documentation generated at the SDM and that can be necessary for several tasks

About include mostly the same elements (the starting point and FAQs)

Search remains the same because is one of the most used resources

Community for the interconnection between users and contributors.

New data model request to learn how to start




Mapping with core public service vocabulary URI available

Every data model in the Smart Data Models program can be mapped with external ontologies and there is a service on the main menu to achieve that.

See main menu -> @context -> generate an external @context

After the publication of data models of CPSV-AP now it is possible to map with their URI thanks to the mapping file.
