20/01/2016 - 3* Open Data

Open Document Format now available on NINIS

In order to make our datasets comply with the 3* Standard on Tim-Berners Lee Open Data Scheme we have now converted all the MS Excel spreadsheets to ‘Open Document Format’. This means that users will not be confined to a particular software.

ODF LogoA new blue ‘ODF’ icon appears beside dataset names on the NINIS website replacing the MS Excel Logo.

For MS Excel users, there should be no change and they can still open these spreadsheets in MS Excel. You may receive a message about unreadable content, please click ‘yes’ to recover the contents. We are working on a more permanent solution to this.

In 2016, we will be working to provide all winzip files in open document format also.
