SheetsGetting Started
4
“Introduction” contains the same/similar information as this web page. Add services by copying our data standards template into a Google, Excel or LibreOffice spreadsheet. If you don’t know where to find services information, pick a source from the “Sources” sheet and work on that.
5
“Services” is the directory that people who want assistance information can access and search through. A pop-up will appear when you hover over each column header that explains what type of information should be entered into the column. Column headers correspond to the standards established by Open Referral. Fill in as much information about each new services as you can. Make sure to use the taxonomies in the template to describe the service_type and audience.
6
“service_type” is a list of terms used to describe the services. This is the taxonomy. The “Services” sheet validates whether you use these terms to define services. To get your data uploaded to our directory, email a CSV to data@nycprepared.org or upload it at the bottom of this page. If you can’t see an upload button, register for FLOCurrency and return to this page. Once you’ve gotten us the data we’ll merge it with the master dataset and will let you know when it’s all done.
7
“audience” is a list of terms that describe the type of people for whom this service is designed and is relevant. The “Services” sheet validates whether you use these terms to define services. Don’t forget to add a time entry to the “Work Log” so people know that you’ve begun work on a specific resource and don’t repeat work you’re already doing. This time logging may also be used to calculate your reward.
8
service_area” is a list of terms that describes the neighbourhoods and geographic areas in which services are provided. The “Services” sheet validates whether you use these terms to define services.Notes
9
“Sources” is where you’ll find a list of resources that contain human service information we want to add to our “Services” sheet. When calling organizations to find out more information, feel free to say “I work with NYC:Prepared to collect information about services for people affected by Super Storm Sandy. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions about the services you offer?”
10
“Work Log” is where you can say when you’re adding sources to prevent people from doing work on the same areas and to document people’s contributions to the spreadsheet. When entering information about services, do your best to classify each service with ONE category.
