Tutorial 1 - Data and Metadata Management Using DDI

Wendy Thomas (University of Minnesota, Minnesota Population Center) and Marcel Hebing (DIW Berlin - German Institute for Economic Research)

(maximum number of participants: 16)

Formalizing the process of data and metadata management has become increasingly important. The DDI metadata standard was designed to support metadata management from simple stand-alone studies to major statistical production systems. This workshop will look at how DDI supports the data and metadata management process from a high level business perspective. Use cases covering different organizational structures and processes will be used to provide a checklist of options for introducing DDI into an organization.

  • Introductions and Workshop Outline
  • Business goals: What are the internal and external goals for your organization? Do they differ between types of organizations?
  • Features of DDI that can help address those goals: What is the coverage of DDI? What content can be used to drive production and what is just informational? What additions are under development? What are the basic structural components of DDI and how does it interact with other standards used by data organizations?
  • How to integrate DDI into an existing system: Where do you start within different organizational types and in different situations? How do you develop buy in from management, funders, and staff?

Tutorial 2 - Learn How to Use the Nesstar REST API - Use Javascript and HTML to bring your DDI metadata and the power of Nesstar to your website

Ørnulf Risnes (NSD - Norwegian Social Science Data Services)

(maximum number of participants: 13)

The Nesstar REST API builds upon the Nesstar API, but it is platform agnostic and even easier and faster to use. The REST API supports metadata navigation and delivery. It also supports tabulation, correlation, regression as well as cube functionality such as querying, slicing and dicing

This hands-on tutorial will get you started using the Nesstar REST API, and show how you can put your Nesstar based data and metadata to re-use in minutes. Participants that already have developed such applications are welcome to demonstrate their tools during this informal tutorial. Participants are encouraged to experiment with the publicly available Nesstar REST API before the tutorial. Bring your laptop. A Git client, a Java RE and Apache Maven will also be needed. No particular editor or other tools are required.
