Today (Feb. 18, 2016), the beta ended and version 1.0 became available.
This page shares a look at what’s new in the new version. Here are a few of the items listed.
Metadata Quality Assessment – already known to you as “MQA” – this functionality has been enhanced to better match the methods used by the harvested portals and refine the results. In addition, new graphs are added to provide a more comprehensive overview of the metadata quality. Take a look at the detailed view per catalogue!
Multilingualism – 3 new languages available throughout the Portal. Thanks to the European Commission tool called “MT @ EC,” machine translation of all metadata has been extended with three more languages: Spanish, Italian and Polish. More languages coming up soon.
Eurostat basemaps – the maps used to visualise datasets are updated with maps from the most recent Eurostat Statistical Atlas.
Publication of the source code – the European Data Portal is built using open source code. The portal infrastructure will be available soon for download via GITLAB with accompanying documentation. Follow our latest news to stay informed.
Library – discover a completely new library with dozens and dozens of resources around Open Data organised into six different categories.
Training companion – This new section helps you deliver training on the basics of Open Data and provides you with supporting materials to suit your needs. Discover tips on how to run sessions, what to prepare, examples to show case and more.
FAQ – A new section with frequently asked questions is added to the portal to make it easier to find the answers to commonly asked questions. This part of the portal is still work in progress and will be expanded when other questions are frequently asked.
