The SIIEAU maintains a repository dataset to ensure consistency of the Togo water related datasets. This repository aims to facilitate data exchange between the SIIEAU stakeholders. It contains:
The repository is managed by the SIIEAU Data administrator in close collaboration with the SIIEAU stakeholders and on-demand.
The principle of data exchange is based on the transmission of data records stored in an Excel format file (97-2004/.xls). this is a simple and human readable format. It can be used with a worksheet software such as Open Office or Microsoft Office. The first line of each file contains the column labels found in the SIIEAU database. The next lines contain the transmitted data. The formats of the exchange files are different depending on the type of data transmitted. Several types of transfer files are distinguished:
In order to periodically transmit their measurements, observations and indicators data values, the SIEEAU data producers may use the data portal.
Regarding the reference sites, variables, methods, sources and metadata, completed transfer files must be sent by e-mail to the SIIEAU data administrator who will then take their introduction into the database.
By using the dedicated form, you can submit an update or an addition in the common vocabulary. After reviewing your application, the SIIEAU administrator will contact you.
Data references (Sites, Variables, Methods, Sources) as well as the common vocabulary data can be obtained using the API ReST. The standard data format is JSON.
The others references data can obtained using the same mecanism used to get sites data (see sections 3 and 4):All variables:
