About Checksum: A checksum is a simple, commonly-used error-detection scheme that is often used with file downloads. The user can compare a checksum calculated from their copy of a file with the checksum listed for the original. Differences between the checksums point to differences in the two files. We have used md5 checksums to help you see that a package you have is the same as the one we published
What's happening next?
We will develop and improve this site and its content in the years to come. We will review the licenses used, make every effort to keep the data current, and correct errors that are brought to our attention. We also aim to integrate and link our data using semantic web and open data standards.
The Open Data Institute (ODI) is working with us to help build our skills and capabilities in open data. We recognize how important it is that our data is of excellent quality and that everything we publish keeps personal information private. The ODI is helping us to apply a set of standards to our data that, in time, mean everything we release as open data comes with a best-practice guarantee.
These practices include, for example:
- Stating conditions of ownership, licensing and re-use
- Providing data in a harmonized and structured format
- Using metadata and controlled vocabularies
- Providing documentation and support channels for feedback and questions
By publishing our data, we want to engage in a new form of dialogue with you. To provide us with your feedback, communicate errors you have found, and if you want to ask questions about the data and its uses or access earlier versions of published files, please get in touch with us at RNA.Data@syngenta.com
