Fusion Registry 9 from Metadata Technology is a statistical data management system for government agencies and public bodies who need to collect, integrate, process and publish official statistics.
It provides a range of simple, flexible and automated ways to publish statistics in formats, and through interfaces useful to your data consumers - making it ideal for Open Data.
Six Ways to Publish Your Statistics
using Fusion Registry 9
Dynamic links give users access to the most up to date data, as soon as it is published.
The data only needs to be loaded into Fusion Registry once.
Links can then be easily created to automatically provide access to the whole dataset in a variety of useful formats:
Government Support to the Rail Industry
Fusion Data Browser comes with Fusion Registry.
It's a stand-alone web application that allows data consumers to:
- Explore your entire data catalogue
- Build queries and select data of interest
- Visualise data using charts and tables
- Download complete datasets or just a selection of series in a range of useful formats including Excel, CSV, JSON and XML
How to use it?
Option 1: Place a link to the Fusion Data Browser service provided by your Fusion Registry on data.gov.uk or your own website. For instance:
Create charts and tables using Fusion Data Browser and share them as URL links, or embed them directly into websites or dashboards.
Fusion Registry provides a comprehensive REST web services data API for apps and data consumers who want direct access to the data for analytics.
The API complies with the SDMX REST API specification so is compatible with any tools that support the standard.
A data query URI has the following elements:
- The dataset to query, for instance
ORR,GOV_SUPPORT_RAIL_INDUSTRY,1.0references the 'Government Support to the Rail Industry' version 1.0 dataset, published by the ORR (Office for Rail and Road)
- A filter specifying what sub-selection of series to retrieve or
allfor the full dataset. The filter works in a similar way to Excel column filters in that it allows a list of values to be set for each of the dataset's dimensions. If a dataset has three dimensions: INDICATOR, REGION and FREQUENCY then a valid filter string could be
IND1.UK.Ameaning INDICATOR=IND1, REGION=UK, FREQUENCY=A (annual). If you don't want to filter a dimension, simply leave it out.
IND1..Ameans all REGIONs.
- URL parameters including
format(specifies the data format: excel, csv, sdmx-json, rdf-turtle etc),
detail=serieskeysonly(returns just the series without observations), and
includehistory=true(includes revisions where they exist).
