Data Catalog Upgrade

Data Catalog Upgrade
July 18, 2017 Comments Off on Data Catalog Upgrade Blog,Data Ron Pringle

I am pleased to report that our upgrade of the OpenColorado data catalog to CKAN version 2.5.2 was completed successfully on 7/15/16.

The upgrade brings several functional and performance improvements, such as:

  • More built-in dataset previews;
  • A more user-friendly look & feel;
  • API access to datasets;
  • The option to mark datasets as private or public;
  • Improved dataset authorization under organizations; and
  • Performance improvements.

If you use the API wrapper, you can find an updated PHP wrapper at https://github.com/opencolorado/PHP-Wrapper-for-CKAN-API.

Our appreciation goes to Xentity Corporation, who has provided development support for this upgrade, as well as several other improvements to the OpenColorado data platform.

If you encounter any issues with the data catalog or have any suggestions for improving the site, please contact us.
