ready Tabular Data Package


General Information
Tabular Data Package is a simple container format used for publishing and sharing tabular-style data. The format's focus is on simplicity and ease of use, especially online. In addition, the format is focused on data that can be presented in a tabular structure and in making it easy to produce (and consume) tabular data packages from spreadsheets and relational databases. The key features of this format are the following: CSV (comma separated variables) for data files; single JSON file (datapackage.json) to describe the dataset including a schema for data files; and reuse of existing work including other Frictionless Data specifications. As suggested by the name, Tabular Data Package extends and specializes the Data Package spec for the specific case where the data is tabular. In a Tabular Data Package, each CSV must have a schema defined using Table Schema and, optionally, a dialect defined using CSV-DDF. An application or library that consumes Tabular Data Packages therefore must be able to understand not only the full Data Package specification, but also Table Schema and CSV-DDF.



Awaiting DOI assignment.
