In Hong

the theme page on API and air quality for more information.

Grades are calculated on the basis of the geometric mean of the E. coli counts on the five most recent sampling occasions.

nil See note at right on total number of datasetsTotal number of datasets available from the Data.One site.

The datasets are numbered 01-40.
It may be better to call them something else:
Dataset groups
Dataset pools
Identification number
or something else.

There needs to be a much more complete explanation of each dataset, how many unique datasets may potentially be downloaded, an explanation when there is a link to another site in the HK government. When there is a link to another HK government site, such as Census & Statistics Department or Rating and Valuation Department it should be clear on that website that the datasets are being offered as part of and covered by the Data.One terms and conditions. Currently, this informaiton is either buried, see Census & Statistics, or not available at all, Rating and Valuation Department. There should be a link back to the Data.One site on these other sites.
