ready Data Package

General Information
Data Package is a simple container format used to describe and package a collection of data. The format provides a simple contract for data interoperability that supports frictionless delivery, installation and management of data. A Data Package consists of metadata that describes the structure and contents of the package, and resources (such as data files) that form the contents of the package. The Data Package metadata is stored in a "descriptor". This descriptor is what makes a collection of data a Data Package. In addition to this descriptor a data package will include other resources such as data files. The Data Package specification does NOT impose any requirements on their form or structure and can therefore be used for packaging any kind of data.
