2.- fill the NGSI type (Property, Relationship or Geoproperty)

3.- In case of property, fill the data type (array and object types are currently not completely supported)

4.- Fill in the description

5.- Click the button, the page will reload

6.- voila! you have your json schema below the spreadsheet, just copy and paste into your favourite editor.

The python code for it is also made public in the utils directory in the data models repo.
