Google DSPL: Dataset Publishing Language

Overview | Dataset Publishing Language | Google Developers

"Describe your data to enable powerful visualizations
DSPL is the Dataset Publishing Language, a representation language for the data and metadata of datasets. Datasets described in this format can be processed by Google and visualized in the Google Public Data Explorer.

  • Use existing data: Just add an XML metadata file to your existing CSV data files
  • Powerful visualizations: Unleash the full capabilities of the Google Public Data Explorer, including the animated bar chart, motion chart, and map visualization
  • Linkable concepts: Link to concepts in other datasets or create your own that others can use
  • Multi-language: Create datasets with metadata in any combination of languages
  • Geo-enabled: Make your data mappable by adding latitude and longitude data to your concept definitions. For even easier mapping, link to Google's canonical geographic concepts.
  • Fully open: Freely use the DSPL format in your own applications"

Amazon’s HQ2 Hunger Games Are Over, and Jeff Bezos Won | WIRED

Amazon announces NYC and Northern Virginia as HQ2 winners - CNET

"...Amazon picked not one, but two locations for its HQ2 project.
.... selected Long Island City in New York City's Queens borough and National Landing (a new name for the Crystal City neighborhood) in Arlington, Virginia, outside Washington, DC. The picks, which were already widely anticipated for the past week, are expected to each land 25,0000 well-paid jobs.

Amazon also said it has selected Nashville to host a new 5,000-person "center of excellence" for its operations business, which handles customer fulfillment, transportation, supply chain and other activities. It plans to start hiring at all three locations next year.
New York is offering Amazon $1.525 billion in incentives, and Virginia $573 million, pegged to the company's proposal to create 25,000 jobs at each location. Tennessee is offering up to $102 million for 5,000 jobs. As part of these agreements, the positions in all three cities will need to have an average wage of $150,000, Amazon said."
