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)

    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

    Release of software for Smart Data Models Programs

    According to the last open session, the script for the creation of the model.yaml file (see this example) file which is present in every data model has been released.
    It is a python 3.6 script you can access in the utils directory of the program.
    source code available.

    Collaboration with existing data models in progress.

    If you are willing to collaborate with some of the data models currently in progress you can now access a list of projects in the new option in the main menu.

    If you are willing to launch your own project for the creation or update of data models you can fill this form, to ask for permissions in incubated repository. Once received permissions will be granted. Also in the main menu.

    Microsoft digital twins export DTDL in beta

    We have created an export of Smart Data Models in DTDL format. You’ll see them in the root directory named schemaDTDL.json.

    A bit more than 500 models have got it because we are in the process of a final complete mapping between the possibilities of JSON schema and DTDL.

    This is the first version for testing purposes and they are not meant to be ready for production. Anyhow, we welcome any feedback on them.

    See this example schemaDTDL.json, and a tool for finding all of them is available here. (Same tool for any other search).

     

     

    New method for drafting the json schema for a new data model

    A new tool (capable of the creation of more complex data models) is available at the menu “Draft a data model”.
    It is an external tool that simplifies the json schema needs.
    Hope it speeds up the development of new data models and simplifies it for newcomers to this syntaxis.
    Anyhow this is the best guide (simple and straight to the point we know)
    It is also available at the learning zone in the upper menu.

    The JSON schema is our single source of truth compiling into a single document the technical description with the definitions of every element in the data model.
