End of the implementation of the qualitative change in the datasets with Culture data published in the Open Data BCN portal
For the past 4 months, and as we announced in the corresponding news article, a qualitative change has been carried out with the datasets published in the Open Data BCN portal that contain Culture data, without involving any loss of information.
This change is now completed, highlighting the benefit of increasing the analytical potential for the reuser, since it allows crossing data with much more agility, it facilitates the creation of new indicators and, for the system manager, facilitates the management and maintenance of the system when reducing the number of datasets and published resources.
In what refers to the data volume, we went from 47 datasets initially existing to 24, 3 of them which are new publications. You can consult it here.
Many datasets of the Open Data BCN portal also have resources published with historical data. What does this mean? Well, not only the current information of the corresponding management system is published, with the indicated periodicity, but also that data of years, quarters or previous months are available to all users, allowing different studies and comparisons to be made. The catalog facilitates the search through the filter 'Historical information: Yes'
Thus, we found annual update datasets, such as among others those of accident rate and demography, quarterly as citizen requests and we highlight the historical datasets of those in which we publish the data with frequency of instant update or every 5 minutes, such as traffic, where you can find data for months since October of 2017, bicing, both the use and the seasons, with data from the month of August and the air quality since June 2018. Others, such as street trees and Tourist housing present quarterly series.
