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.

  • 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)

    Open session 5-7-21

    Presentation of the 5-7-21 in the open session. Next session on the 12th of July 14:00h CEST.

    If you want to present something these are the slides with several free slots to be filled by the people attending.

    Source code for generating NGSI-LD key values examples based on Smart Data Models released

    According to the last open session, the script for the creation of the examples of the NGSI-LD key values is available for review and use with an open license.
    It is a python 3.6 script you can access in the utils directory of the initiative.
    Source code available

    New data Model TechnicalCabinetDevice in Energy domain

    In the subject dataModel.Energy there is a new data model, TechnicalCabinetDevice for describing a technical cabinet for storing different elements in an Energy system (or for another type of system as well)

    • TechnicalCabinetDevice. Technical Cabinet Device Data Model is intended to describe the technical characteristics of the device, designed to be placed in an urban or interurban environment. The main objective of these cabinets for this Data Model is to protect the electrical equipment necessary for the control, surveillance, reading, and management of urban lighting, signaling, video, and electrical distribution. The scope of use of some of these cabinets can extend to additional protection for installations of modular apparatuses of telephony, data processing, meteorological stations, photo-voltaic stations, wind turbines stations, telecommunications, networks, data, Optics, etc. Remark: This Data Model can be used directly as a main entity to describe the device Technical Cabinet or as a sub-entity of the Data Model DEVICE using a reference by the refDevice attribute. It can also refer to the list of all the components it contains, with the refDeviceList attribute, using the Data Model DEVICE

    Open Session 28-6-21
