Adding or revising the content
Revision and definitions of new datasets is handled by persons who have obtained administration rights and have logged in by pressing the Login button.
- Revision of data definitions: Once you log in, you will be provided with additional functions on the left-hand pane, enabling you to add new data definitions or revise content. This you can do manually, by writing into the forms on the web pages.
- You can import data definitions directly in XML format. EEA has developed an MSAccess database for preparation of the data definitions, which you can then generate into XML format which in turn can then be imported into Data Dictionary database.
- Each data definition can be represented in XML Schema format and you can see (and save) them when pressing the relevant link in the upper part of definition views.
Adding or revising the definition structure
Each dataset, table and data element is defined by a set of attributes. A lot of them correspond to ISO 11179 standard for describing data elements. Data Dictionary attribute set will be relatively stable. However, the system is flexible and an administrator can dynamically add/remove attributes from/to the system. To search for attributes, administrator can use the Attributes button on the left-hand pane.
