May, 2019 #
Model Catalog #
- New content: The MINT model catalog has been expanded to include a semantic representation of units, scientific variables and links to Wikidata. Check the release on GitHub for more information.
- New APIs for adding content: We have expanded our APIs with a new client based on Open API that allows anyone to insert models in the model catalog. The API is accessible in the following link: https://api.models.mint.isi.edu/v0.0.2/ui/#/
- New APIs for accessing content: 3 new methods have been added to our GRLC API. The first one, to obtain additional information of a Scientific Variable given its label (getStandardVariableMetadata). The other two (getInputCompatibleConfig) and (getOutputCompatibleConfig) retrieve those models or software compatible with a target model. This facilitates understanding which software has variables that may interoperate with other software.
- A new client for accessing content: With our new Python client, now it is possible to access the content in the model catalog without having to issue SPARQL queries or API queries. Check it out here.
- New examples: Check out our notebook for examples on how to use the client.
- The Model Explorer has been updated to show the contents of models in a more user-friendly manner. Check here the latest version. Please open new issues on GitHub if you find bugs.
