In June 2022, DATA4PT was proud to launch the Data Validation Tool, aiming to help mobility stakeholders verify their data and ensuring it is of high quality and accessible for other stakeholders. The Data Validation Tool was developed to check NeTEx data, the EU standardised format for public transport which includes all static data such as timetables, fare offers, and route and network descriptions.
Since, then several updates have been made, to better meet the needs of advanced users.
In particular, some of the changes on the core tool (script folders) are:
Some minor changes are also released for the web interface (GUI):
More features will come in the coming months, to further enable customisation, to add possibilities to configure the rules, to introduce more content related rules, to facilitate the selection of rules depending on the use-case and to improve the reporting. Stay tuned!
You can test online and download the desktop version of the tool here.
