Project Open Data Compliance¶
DKAN provides a “data.json” index to satisfy the US federal government’s Project Open Data requirements. More information about the “slash data” or “data.json” requirements can be found in POD’s Open Data Catalog Requirements and Common Core Metadata Schema pages.
Public Catalog Listing API, Based on CKAN¶
For exposing more and better-structured machine-readable metadata than Project Open Data’s data.json allows for, DKAN also ships with a public API based heavily on CKAN’s. This includes APIs for viewing the contents of an entire catalog, as well as requesting the metadata for a single dataset.
