How To Format Resources

GrantRVD/data-neuroscience

The syllabus will be built around “resources,” which are essentially little bits of (JSON-style) metadata containing the reference DOIs and/or URLs to fetch and retreive the data, along with information to make it easy to rebuild the static webpage without having to manually edit web page content. In addition, it provides a way to add resources with pull-requests.

I’d like to hear what format people more experienced with JSON-based data recommend. As in, what data should the template include.

The current consensus will be represented in the resource-template.json

Create a flow for checking with user that the EIN is for the org they want

opentechinstitute/990-scraper

Potentially:

  • give the user the top three search results, with name, city, state, and type of org (based on ntee code)
  • user selects the right one, “Skip,” or “select first result for all remaining rows”
  • if it is correct, then run lookUpByEIN() and return info
  • if not, skip that row and leave it blank

save these preferences until they add different org names

Ordering of episodes

data-lessons/library-python-intro

Ordering of assigning variables and data types is perhaps not the best.

One suggestion would be to swap episodes 2 and 3.

Another suggestion would be to break down episode 2 and 3 in different blocks and ordering in a logical flow order.

For instance, have a look at http://nbviewer.jupyter.org/github/fbkarsdorp/python-course/blob/master/Chapter%201%20-%20Getting%20started.ipynb

Episode 6: Extend with examples

data-lessons/library-openrefine

The re-worked episodes structure has left this episode rather thin.

It needs at least some exercises added in. Potentially it could be well served by some additional content but not sure what.

Please add Exercises as priority, and discuss potential additional content in this issue

Create Web portal for registering chiefs

Obadha/baraza

Chiefs will be registered by admins. We should have an online portal where this will happen. The idea is for chiefs not to register themselves, to prevent just anyone from registering themselves as chief!

Guide to discovering articles for PJC

SamanthaHindle/preprint_JournalClub

This is a great idea, but for people starting with Preprints and seeing the value of reviewing them, it might be a good idea to provide some outline on how to discover preprints? Considering there are several repositories, some have already been published (defeating the PJC idea), it is important to have the right discovery process to find preprints relevant to the JC’s interests.

It could be so simple as providing a resource list of preprint places, and as granular as curating several lists for various topics.

Maybe we can discuss here?

When to use/not to use.

data-lessons/library-openrefine

This is based on a conversation here at Berkeley, so credit to @scottcpeterson as well.

As part of the introduction about the uses of OpenRefine, it might be useful also discuss its limitations and when it should be used independently versus in concert with other tools (regex, Python, etc).

When the API gives us an NTEE code, convert it to human language

opentechinstitute/990-scraper

When we ask the Propublica API for an ntee_code, it returns things like D45, N14, and H56, which are not very interesting on their own. HOWEVER, those letters and numbers correspond to specific categories like O21: Boys Clubs, K: Food, Agriculture, and Nutrition, and D50: Zoo, Zoological Society. It would be much more useful and readable if we translated something like I44 to one cell “Crime, Legal Related” and another cell “Prison Alternatives.”

I’ve attached a document published by the IRS that gives the key to all these codes, but maybe there’s a structured dataset somewhere?

This is for you, dear open source contributor, to find out.

Grouping map features by type

open-omaha/omaha-parks

The city’s shapefiles for park areas include 70 different attributes, which is way too many for a user to filter through. But, maybe one way to make this better for users is to group these attributes by type (e.g., Sports and Recreation, Play Structures, etc.). This may not grab everything (e.g., bathroom access) but those can be singled out as additional features/options. The full list of parks and features are in the Google Doc.

Reach out to other web-archiving projects about collab on our tool comparison resource

edgi-govdata-archiving/overview

@mhucka has gone to great efforts to create an comparison resource: https://github.com/archivers-space/research/tree/master/web_archiving

It would be great if we could lure other FOSS projects into collaborating on this with us on this :)

One way to do this might be to write some boilerplate copy for how this would fit into a README (perhaps copying that into the research README), and then open issues (or even pull requests?) in the various projects, asking how they’d feel about linking to it.

We’d also probably want to immediately give that maintainer access to work on that research repo, so that they don’t suffer inconvenience beyond what they’d have maintaining their own. We might need a new GitHub team for this, so if you go that route, you might need to collaborate with @patcon @dcwalk @b5 or @lizbarry or others on this page to ensure they’re added to an appropriate team :)

Something like this, but please improve lingo! https://github.com/archivers-space/sentry/pull/6

trello-based onboarding to webmonitoring dev

edgi-govdata-archiving/overview

@patcon is prototyping a self-onboarding Trello system for - (a) EDGI in general - (b) EDGI subprojects, e.g. web monitoring, archiving, etc.

(@patcon EDIT: h/t @cswc for TeamKit trello inspiration from DemocracyKit project)

Looks pretty neat, though of ocurse it also adds YAT (Yet Another Tool) which I guesss is not optimal.


@patcon EDIT This ticket will now be for webmonitoring dev onboarding:

https://trello.com/b/FCGGEaQq/edgi-web-monitoring-project-onboarding

To Do

  • [x] build out first-pass of process
  • [ ] address suggestions from @KrzysztofMadejski in edgi-govdata-archiving/web-monitoring#44
  • [x] incorporate into main README as blessed path
  • [ ] have at least X more new people run through (where X = 2?)
  • [ ] present resource to larger group (EDGI steering committee?)

Rewrite sections "Filtering" and "Building more complex queries"

data-lessons/library-sql

02-basic-queries SAYS:

Databases can also filter data – selecting only the data meeting certain criteria. For example, let’s say we only want data for a specific ISSN for the Theory and Applications of Mathematics & Computer Science journal, which has a ISSN code 2067-2764|2247-6202. We need to add a WHERE clause to our query:

SELECT * FROM articles WHERE issns=‘2067-2764|2247-6202’;

But 2067-2764|2247-6202 is not a ISSN code, it’s a combination of 2 (pipe-separated). In case you want to match both at the same time this is not the way, cause - in a row of the table they might be ordered differently within the field - these 2 could be among 3 or more If you’re also looking for 1 of the 2 matched, this query wouldn’t return them either.

First focus on fields that have 1 entry, perhaps ?

Enable listeners and API for the console

PiReel/PiReel-Website

The Pi Reel console is set to understand “key: value” pairs. The planned framework for this is to use the a custom built, “jEditor” object to store and set/get information.

If you would like to contribute to this issue we are looking for people who have experience with coding in javascript as well as implementing strategies for integration of the console with PHP or python.

You are also welcome if you would like to learn more or just have a different perspective you would like to share.

  • [] Advantages of using:
    • “class jEditor{ / code / }” vs. “jEditor = { /code/ }”
  • [] Enable syntax specific listeners
  • [] Enable code completion and help

Documentation for Pi Reel

PiReel/PiReel-Website

Since Pi Reel is in the startup phases of being built the documentation is going to be repeatedly edited and fixed for organizational purposes and conciseness.

If you would like to contribute to this issue we are looking to discuss:
1. Organization of the table of contents
2. How often should we update the docs
3. How should we store the docs and references ( gh-wiki, google, or website. )

But please feel free to chime in on anything related to Pi Reel because it probably needs to be documented. :)

Below is a checklist of things that need to be documented. Their are 2 categories: framework and user interface. Their will also be a miscellaneous category for odd items.

If you would like to add an item to the list please just leave a comment.

Framework

  • [] Document elements registered with x-tags
  • [] Document mixins for the registered elements
  • [] Document custom javascript API
  • [] Document php.ini and httpd.config
  • [] Document console syntax and rules

UI

  • [] Instructions for the console
  • [] Instructions for the key frame console
  • [] Instructions for the Data Feed
  • [] Instructions for the project header bar
  • [] Instructions for the canvas and the tray

Misc

  • [] Write a guide for Pi Reels XAMPP installion from USB
  • [] Write a reference sheet for Pi Reels console
  • [] Write a reference sheet for the javascript API

Data hacking to create overall network visualization of researcher relationships OR citation network

jasonclark/linked-people-bioscience

There are about 35 researchers that form the network included in this release. Any ideas for these specific visualizations are welcome. Brainstorming and sketching without code are welcome.

Each researcher has a profile page which has some nice data (rdf, json-ld) behind the scenes in the markup.

This includes structured data for the page. https://arc.lib.montana.edu/linked-bioscience/about.json?id=2

And structured data for the person. https://arc.lib.montana.edu/linked-bioscience/person.json?id=2

And an indexable/spiderable list of all json-ld files is available in a sitemap. https://arc.lib.montana.edu/linked-bioscience/sitemap-list-jsonld.xml

Those are open data endpoints that can be used to power a research network visualization.

I also have a list of publications produced by these researchers since 2008. It is in a .CSV format and can be a data source for a visualization related to the works created by the group.

Publication list as .csv
