Schema

An XML schema defines the structure of an XML document. An XML schema defines things such as which data elements and attributes can appear in a document; how the data elements relate to one another; whether an element is empty or can include text; which types of data are allowed for specific data elements and attributes; and what the default and fixed values are for elements and attributes. A schema is also a description of the data represented within a database.

SaaS

Software as a Service, i.e. a software program that runs, not on the user’s machine, but on the machines of a hosting company, which the user accesses over the web. The host takes care of associated data storage, and normally charges for the use of the service or monetises its client base in other ways.

RSS

A family of web feed formats (often dubbed Really Simple Syndication) used to publish frequently updated works — such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video — in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a “feed,” “web feed,” or “channel”) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship.

Research data

Documents in a digital form, other than scientific publications, which are collected or produced in the course of scientific research activities and are used as evidence in the research process, or are commonly accepted in the research community as necessary to validate research findings and results.

Request for the re-use of public sector information

A possibility for the user to require the disclosure of the dataset by the public bodies in a machine-readable format suitable for re-use. It is a formal procedure that usually requires the issuing of the formal decision. The decision of the public body is scrutinised by the independent authority or the court.

Reasonable return on investment

A percentage of the overall charge, in addition to that needed to recover the eligible costs, not exceeding 5 percentage points above the fixed interest rate of the ECB. Used to calculate costs above marginal costs by the EU Open data Directive.

Real time

Re-use

A use of public sector information usually by third persons for purposes other than initial purposes within the public tasks for which data were originally collected, produced, or disseminated. It is rare that data gathered for a particular purpose does not have other possible uses. Once gathered, for whatever reason, data can be re-used again and again, in ways that were never envisaged when it was collected, provided only that the data-holder makes it available under an open licence to enable such re-use.
