The platform supports multiple ways to automatically publish data, including Harvesting or using ETL tooling. DataPlatform provides access to available data via the open CKAN API. You can then provide Dashboards and Applications with data via the APIs.

DataPlatform includes the following features:

  • DCAT Data Model: Essential for achieving good findability and the correct description of available data
