The U.S. Data Federation is curating and creating reusable tools to support data validation, automated aggregation, and the development and documentation of data specifications.

Django Data Ingest

The first tool prototyped through this effort is a reusable Django project that manages data submitted as file uploads to a central gathering point. It performs data validation, basic change tracking, and duplicate file handling.
