This is the first survey to the USERS of the Smart Data Models. We want to know what is more important to you and try to prioritize our efforts. This is an agile initiative, therefore we will take into very consideration your comments. Your survey is anonymous although if you wish you can include your email in comments and we will contact you regarding your comments.
You can answer it here.
Soon there will be another survey for the CONTRIBUTORS.
There is a new common section, named “DateTime-Commons“, in the file common-schema.json (the one which is partially included into most of the data models) because it compiles some shared elements (like Location-Commons or GSMA-Commons).
This section includes the first element, which is the mapping into a property (type object) of the schema.org class OpeningHoursSpecification. (see below)
So whenever there is an opening hours specification this would be the chosen format. (It is true that there is a similar property named OpeningHours, also mapped in schema.org) that it is only a text (oriented to be printed more than queried).
It only affects the museum data model that it will be updated after gathering the feedback of the contributors.
The new section included.
“description” : “All date-time elements in data models unless explicitly stated are ISO 8601 compliant”,
“description”: “A structured value providing information about the opening hours of a place or a certain service inside a place.”,
See it in the original file common-schema.json.
Published the contribution manual for the repository.
If you are not a developer (But if you are you can also use it) we have created a page for being updated about the last news of your domain of interest
Check the 10 mail lists available, one per domain. Click in the image to access it.
It is also available in the main menu in the option Subscribe
Most of the data models come from different groups of people interested in the creation of standards in an agile way.
Here you can access a cheat sheet (Let’s call it methodology) on how to tackle these tasks.
summarized these are the steps. It takes for granted that the group is already available.
Step 0. Gather documentation
Step 1. Compile elements.
Step 2. Meet to reach a Generalization proposal
Step 3. Internal validation
Step 4. Create the technical documentation of a data model
Step 5. Submit your data model
Step 6. Review
Step 7. Disseminate
If changes in the Smart data models matters to you, there is a new resource for keeping updated, the general mail list.
It is in test form, you can subscribe here
The initial idea is to send a mail once a week (with some exception for urgent issues).
The form is also available in the right column of the frontend.
The governance documents for the initiative will be located at the main repository in the folder governance.
First documents will be:
- Global governance of the initiative
- An official list of administrators.
A PR on that repo would be reviewed for other documents that can be considered.
Although the preferred option to submit a data model is by making a pull request on the right data model, we have shared this form to allow you to submit it.
The form is on the option Submit data model in the main menu.
Here you can access the drafted versioning policy for the smart data models repository.
Comments welcomed as an issue here or in the administrator mail alberto . abella @ fiware .org
IUDX joins the steering board of Smart Data Models initiative. This agreement will allow FIWARE and the IUDX to collaborate on data models suitable for use in smart city applications. This work will be done in conjunction with the ongoing joint activity between TM Forum — an alliance of 850+ global companies working together to break down technology and cultural barriers between digital service providers, technology suppliers, consultancies and systems integrators — and FIWARE.
