There is a new subject into Cross Sector domain for mapping the DCAT-AP 2.0.1 standard into smart data models.
This is the standard for catalogs and other elements to be shared from open data portals.
See the specification of this standard.
The first data model is the CatalogueDCAT-AP which has been released.
This is just an advance of the session on the next 9th of June, 18:00 CET in the middle of FIWARE Fest.
FIWARE Fest is a three-day online event of world-class innovation, collaboration, and networking. See its agenda.
The smart data models session will include a keynote session and a panel of discussion about practical uses of the Smart Data Models.
You can register for this event here.
Find here the presentation of the open session

To include your topic as a slot in the session, edit these slides https://bit.ly/open_session
- New and updated data models
- New regulations to be adopted
- Risk management data models
- Validation of examples
The README.md of every data model provides the links to the different translations of the specification. These sentences are now in their original languages.
Additionally, these links now take to the specification in GitHub and stop prompting to be downloaded.
Other information available in the README include:
- Links to the automatic creation of examples in NGSI-LD format
- Links to the actual examples of the use of this data model in 4 differnt formats
This format update will be completed today for all data models.
If you can think of other improvements please let us know.
Many of the contributors of the data models are providing changes into the spec.md and its translations.
Fortunately, this is not necessary. You just need to provide the changes in the descriptions included in the schema.json file of each data model.
Now in order to save time for the contributors, a warning message has been included in the specs.
The link takes you to the contribution manual section where the specification is described.
Every week till there will be a 30 min live session to :
- Make questions about any of the data models
- Sharing experiences (maximum 5 minutes)
The agenda for the first 5-minutes slots is this. The 3
- Introduction of the Smart Data Models
Updates of the week (new services and new/updated data models). Survey.
Regulations / standards to be mapped to smart data models

Now there is a specification translated into German available for all data models in the initiative. so it becomes official like French one and Spanish.
The translation is made automatically but it seems to be good enough.
In the README of every data model now there is a new line in the Dynamic examples section, under the text
“Link to the Generator of NGSI-LD keyvalues payloads compliant with this data model. Refresh for new values”
The link provides an example of a NGSI keyvalues payload with values compliant with the data types of this smart data model but generated randomly (so it does not look like static examples which actually are coming from real examples)
There is a new data model in the dataModel.Weather subject, SeaConditions
SeaConditions. This entity contains a harmonized geographic description of sea conditions
There is a new service for users, which is the ability to generate an example payload compliant with a specific data model in key values format. Previously it was available the normalized format.
Options are located in the main menu (Generate NGSI examples)
