Quotation Mitlöhner, Johann, Neumaier, Sebastian, Umbrich, Jürgen, Polleres, Axel. 2016. Characteristics of Open Data CSV Files. In 2nd International Conference on Open and Big Data (OBD), Hrsg. IEEE, 72-79. Vienna, Austria: IEEE.




The following work presents a data corpus consisting of tabular Open Data sources and studies the characteristics and properties of the files from a consumers point of view. Earlier reports showed that the CSV (comma-separated values) format is the predominant format in the Open Data landscape [8]. The main reason is the simplicity and independence of this format: it stores tabular data in plain text where each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields which are separated by a delimiter, typically a comma.
