CIP DataPlatform & DataFactory

DataPlatform is the basic facility for managing data. DataFactory is the steppingstone to data optimization and usage in applications. Together, DataPlatform and DataFactory are the ultimate combination when it primarily revolves around structured and standardized conversion and storage of data.

DataPlatform uses the open-source software CKAN. This is the most used software for open data environments worldwide. The CKAN environment within DataPlatform has been expanded with additional extensions such as DCAT, the Data Dictionary, Data Store (API), Data Quality control and GeoServer.

DataPlatform makes it possible to read any kind of file format (such as CSV, XLS (x), SHP, XML, WFS, PDF, GeoJSON, etc.). 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
  • Data Dictionary: providing insight into the content of the data
  • GeoServer: a complete implementation for accessing geographic data
  • Statistics: gaining insight into usage and visitor statistics.
