[edit] Introduction: Feature Requests for Enipedia

  • please document your ideas or feature requests for Enipedia here. Expect discussion!
  • Hi all, do you have any idea if there is a way to know how many companies operate in the extractive sector in each country, to have an idea of the level of competition that there exist in the sector?

[edit] Feature requests

  • Could we please be able to choose google maps terrain view for the power plants map?
  • For the Delft Energy Standards, I'm looking for ways to use box-plots on comparison/overview pages. Does anybody know if this is included in any tool or extension in use, or how this can be added? -- User:BertvanDorp
    • It's possible to at least do bar charts. See the documentation on http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SparqlExtension. We would have to write custom code to include box plots, otherwise plots can be uploaded as images. It may be possible to implement a Candlestick chart without too much effort. --ChrisDavis (talk) 11:04, 1 October 2012 (CEST)
    • Thanks, I'll try to implement the Google Visualizations Candlestick chart first. Is it helpfull to document this on Enipedia and/or on the MediwWiki page? --User:BertvanDorp
    • The thing is that we need to update the code for the SparqlExtension, which means that we need to update the php code running on the server. --ChrisDavis (talk) 11:35, 1 October 2012 (CEST)
    • Is the upgrade something that needs to be done anyway and should be 'scheduled maintentance', or something that is only neccessary for this functionality? As the DES will probably incorporate a WordPress front-end at some point, we can choose to do some of the visualizations over there. However, I think it's best to have all data and visualization in the Enipedia, and only extract to the front-end. Maybe talk to User:Alfredas to look into upgrading/extending GraphViz, or is that a bridge too far? --User:BertvanDorp
    • For the record, you can actually design a full box-plot by leveraging the interval feature of regular Google charts. I've built a working demo of this. Is there a reason why the feature from SparqlExtension v0.7 allowing to pass options to Google charts has been removed in v0.8? --Nono (talk)
  • I'm trying to access oData (see user:BertvanDorp) to retrieve CBS data. Is anything implemented on here that could be used to do this? If not, it looks like Data.JS or jQuery might be up for the job. BertvanDorp (talk) 17:20, 17 April 2014 (CEST)
    • Is there a link to the CBS documentation? The link on your page just shows a basic XML file which doesn't seem to contain much useful information. Without seeing their documentation, I suspect that you probably just need to write some code to send GET or POST requests to a URL, and then parse the XML files that you get so that you can extract the data. Python or R are good to use for these types of things. --ChrisDavis (talk) 20:46, 17 April 2014 (CEST)
      • As the CBS Open Data project is still in some sort of beta stage, I don't think adding the documentation here would be appreciated. The data however is free to use. Should we create some sort of overview on what technologies can, and what technologies cannot be used to get data into the Enipedia right now? BertvanDorp (talk) 11:03, 18 April 2014 (CEST)
        • What I'm saying about the documentation is that the XML file you linked to doesn't contain any information about how to interface with the CBS system. I really can't evaluate what they're doing and how to work with it just from looking at what you've linked to so far. I think the bigger picture is not necessarily about getting data into Enipedia, it's more about what does the data look like, what are the questions you want to answer with it, what are useful ways in which you want to present & interact with it. There's a lot of different approaches and tools that you could use, and which one to pick depends on many factors. --ChrisDavis (talk) 23:36, 18 April 2014 (CEST)
  • For the Template:DES Process I'd like to be able to select based on the category. This would be made possible with the PageInCat MediaWiki extension. Can this be implemented, or is another way a better fitting solution here? BertvanDorp (talk) 11:06, 21 July 2014 (CEST)
