Pelican backend extracts OCDS data and measures its quality.
(If you are viewing this on GitHub, open the full documentation for additional details.)
To avoid ambiguity:
“collection” refers to the collection in Kingfisher Process, and “dataset” refers to the extracted collection in Pelican backend.
“compiled release” refers to the
datavalue of the compiled release in Kingfisher Process, and “item” refers to its corresponding row in the
data_itemtable in Pelican backend.
In the code and database, “resource” is used for “compiled release” (or “item”), and “time variance” is used for “time-based”. In the documentation, we use the latter words to be consistent with the user interface and with other tools.
We use “extract” instead of “import”, like in the Extract-Transform-Load pattern.
