By clicking on the name of a dataset, one may visualise underlying indicators and add new ones. To add a new indicator, click on one of the two Add indicator button (see screenshot).
The Add standard indicator button create a new standard indicator, i.e. an indicator that is based on a standard nomenclature.
An indicator is characterised by a number of fields: a Code, a Name, an Abstract, Territorial Information, a Genealogy Status (key / background), a Structural Type (Single, Multi, Dimension and Class), a Data Type (Integer, Float, Boolean, Enumerated), a Numerator / Denominator Name, Numerator / Denominator Scale, a Nature Type, Main Theme(s), Access and Use Constraints. Additional fields are provided upon the selection of some of the options related to aforementioned fields.
Besides, several syntactic constraints are defined between fields which describe indicators, e.g. a non-standard indicator cant be set as a key indicator. Most fields are compulsory.
The Add non-standard indicator button allows to create a non-standard indicator, i.e. an indicator that does not refer to a standard nomenclature (be it statistical data or a geospatial data).
Non-standard indicators may only be added as background indicator in a dataset. The specificity of the non-standard indicator is that the data file has to be uploaded in a specific section under the Data tab of the dataset where all non-standard indicators are listed. Most information regarding the content of the data file should be provided in the indicator Abstract.
Dimensions and Classes of a Multi indicators may be created from the indicator page, under the Dimension tab. The Dimension tab also provides a view of the internal structure of the Multi indicator
