New and Automated Datasets

March 9, 2012

We’ve got two new datasets:

University Events Diary – this is aggregated once an hour from all over the university website and various other sources. It is going to be used to build a new university events website. Until then you can see the events on the pages for Faculties, Academic Units and Buildings. It (mostly) contains events which are open to the public.

SUSU Events – this is the same format, but contains events mostly restricted to our students. It’s pulled from their facebook page using the facebook API. Let me know if you want a copy of that script.

The Organisation Structure Dataset now pulls the structure and names from the university HR database every Sunday. The buildings occupied and homepages are still being hand maintained by me.
