This is a static self contained version of the System2020 map.
The map is an interactive data visualisation through which you can explore science learning initiatives outside the classroom across Europe. It includes a snapshot of the dataset created for this project.

# about the dataset

The data was acquired via a form that has been online
during the course of the project. An active campaign resulted in numerous organisations filling in the form.

The mapping of European STEAM organisations, programs, events, online projects and bottom up initiatives across a number of parameters has generated comparable data and is bound to produce valuable insights. The collected data includes information on different targets groups, scientific topics, the used methods, outreach and communication strategies, guidance of activities, collaboration, governance and more. We have visualised this data on the interactive map, by which you can explore STEAM organisations, activities and their interrelations across Europe.

In addition to the map, the dataset is open to use as input for quantitative research on these existing initiatives.

The files in JSON format contain the specification of the data. The main usage is to retrieve specific information on 'fields' of data types. For example the list of values that are allowed for a data field. Some of the fields that are specified as ordinal.

Data entries (currently of types activity and organisation) can have relations. These relations are stored as foreign keys in specific data fields of data entries.

Organisation data fields:

    nid: unique reference id for the entry
    related-organisations: list of id's, referencing other entries of type organisation

Activity data fields:

    nid: unique reference id for the entry
    submitter-organisation: single reference to an entry of type organisation
    related-activities: list id's, referencing other entries of type activity
    related-organisations: list id's, referencing entries of type organisation
