Unique identifiers for sectors, organizations, countries, projects, and transactions provide an implicit web of links which can be analyzed to show development efforts as a complex set of interrelationships.
AidData has been cleaning up unique ID references in the IATI Registry so that referential integrity is more consistently implemented between data sources. Building on this work, the challenge seeks to enable automated correction and analysis of data in the IATI Registry.
Outcomes: tool for automatic IATI XML auditing and correction, and for network analysis.
Main datasets: IATI Registry and AidData correction mappings
Lead: Owen Scott, AidData
