Hi Nick, Mark, everyone
Glad to report data is available for Portugal in
Some (more) questions:
1 - I managed to load the 157k lines of data. It's a bit on the slow
side. What can be expected when we go live?
2 - How should incremental data be treated? Theoretically everyday this
database is updated.
3 - How can I have views with percentages and trends as in
4 - How could a UI with maps as in wheredoesmymoneygo.org be set up?
5 - I have set up (2 drilldown dimensions, region with 3 levels and
institutions, but I am struggling with the namings and the hierarchy
itself). I am also considering and planning 2 additional dimensions, one
by themes (education, health, military...) and another by economic
activity (agriculture, industry, services). Does anyone have procedures
on any of these 4 dimensions. I guess the obvious path to go for regions
would be the NUTS regions. What about the others, are there any
standards we can adopt.
I know it's a lot to deal with and I don't expect definite answers, but
I wanted to share these ideas and doubts.
