national developments
National Developments
  • New government guidelines
  • Norstore
  • Public data license
  • SIOS, Inspire vs DIF
government guidelines
Government Guidelines
  • «Provide access to suitable, existing raw data on machine-readable formats»
  • Information of public value, that can be reused, not restricted, limited costs
  • Free for use by external service providers
  • Publish on the web (
  • In the science domain: Norstore
    • 4 Universities
    • IPY legacy data
open data license nlod
Open Data License (NLOD)
  • Currently being introduced for government agencies:
    • Single option
    • Attribution
    • Work (information, data) offered as-is
    • CC BY compatible

harvesting by amd
Harvesting by AMD
  • DOKIPY OAI-PMH data provider
  • Stable metadata population at AMD?
  • Controlled vocabulary issues
    • Locations and science keywords ok
    • Data centres and projects require manual intervention
    • Users must be allowed to enter new names not listed
    • New names are replaced with GCMD valids before OAI-PMH exposure
    • New projects/data centres not listed at GCMD require manual update
    • Convoluted validation
