During the next few months, and as the datasets of Statistics published in the Open Data BCN portal are being treated, a qualitative change will be made in the datasets containing information on Culture. The data, so far presented so that each dataset contains a single concept, are now organized so that the dataset contains all the concepts that can be analysed together. As an example, the so-called "Visitors to museums and exhibition spaces in the city of Barcelona", "Users of museums and exhibition spaces in the city of Barcelona", "Visitors to temporary exhibitions in the city of Barcelona", "Number of temporary exhibitions in the city of Barcelona" and "Museum collection holdings in the city of Barcelona" are replaced by a single dataset called "Museum and exhibitions' data of the city of Barcelona". On the other hand, the dataset "List of temporary exhibitions in the city of Barcelona" will remain unchanged, since the nature of the data it contains does not allow it to be crossed with any other.
The publication formats will not change and will continue to be .csv and .xml. However, the number of visits and downloads will reflect the accumulated number of visits, since the inauguration of the new portal (02/23/2017) of the dataset or datasets that are replaced.
This change will mean that the portal presents, in absolute values, a decrease in the number of datasets in favour of a better quality of the published ones.
