Updated the resources for generating automatic examples

Once you have the json schema of a smart Data model there are two services that allow you to generate random payloads compliant with the JSON schema in NGSI-LD.
both services are for generating

these services have been updated and some errors were fixed.

Soon these services will be also available for NGSI v2 platform.

 

3 new data models in FrictionlessData subject CSVDialectFrictionlessData, DataResourceFrictionlessData and TableSchemaFrictionlessData

The adaptation of the frictionless data standard is completed with these three new data models in the datamodel.FrictionlessData subject

  • CSVDialectFrictionlessData. The CSV dialect descriptor. Converted for Smart Data Models initiative from original frictionless data
  • DataResourceFrictionlessData. Data Resource. Converted for Smart Data Models initiative from original frictionless data
  • TableSchemaFrictionlessData. A Table Schema for this resource, compliant with the Table Schema specification. Converted for Smart Data Models initiative from original frictionless data

These data models can easy the integration with OpenSDG a tool for demonstrate the progress in terms of SDG for a region, large organization or country. Open SDG is an open source, free-to-reuse platform for managing and publishing data and statistics related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Open Session 16-8-21

  • New data model checker
    • Now also reports what properties are already being used in other data models and their definitions
  • Slack channel. https://smart-data-models.slack.com
  • In progress
      1. Work with frictionless data accepted by authors
      2. Working regarding the adoption of Energy data models
      3. DDI-CDI integration with NGSI-LD and smart data model

 

New features in the check of new data models

Now it is possible to check if the defined properties of a new model have already been used in other models.

Thus there are two new sections in the check of the data model:

  • alreadyUsedproperties
  • availableProperties

New Subject Frictionless Data

Frictionless data is a data format for sharing information.

This is the format used by the openSDG tool

for reporting indicators related to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

This subject, datamodel.FrictionlessData will map this standard allowing its use in the NGSI platforms like the FIWARE platform.

Integration with SDG is one of our public pending tasks.

Open session will be retaken on August 16th

Just a minor announcement about Open sessions. They will be retaken on the 16th.

You can suggest topics for the sessions. Domain-specific (e.g. health, environment, robotics, etc), subject (e.g. DCAT-AP, TouristDestinations, urban mobility, etc), or standardizations that should be mapped into the smart data models (e.g. SDG, DLT, ROS, cityGML, etc) or another topic. You could also present your presentation/questions during the session if you wish. We would appreciate you to mention why this suggested topic is relevant.

Open session 2021-7-19

  • No new subjects, data models, or updates in data models
  • In progress

      • Open data portal. (not from standard)
  • Next session 16th of August

 

Updated the learning zone with new videos

There is a new section in the Learning zone (4th option from the left in the upper menu).

The three new videos explain how to create data models without much technical knowledge thanks to the text editor online.

Three videos to create your first data model

These 3 videos are explaining to you how to use the online editor to create a new data model.

Are the videos useful?

    Useful (***** the best, * the worst)
