Making the Big Data Input, Survey and Census Metabase for the BBS

Data recovery and conversion from mainframe EBCDIC into ASCII is a big step towards the dissemination of Big Data covering Bangladesh’s economic developmental trend.

Metadata (unstructured to structured data) are many data in both structured and unstructured form. The structured data are from many sources like CS Pro, Access, Excel, Stata & FoxPro. On the other hand, there are many unstructured data as well which needs to be converted into a structured format prior to migrating the datasets.

Data Cataloging is a web-based data catalog application, compliant with the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) metadata standards. It serves as a portal for researchers to browse, search, compare, apply for access to relevant census or survey, and download questionnaires, reports, and other information basing on a robust Backend Database.

MetaBase is a web-based microdata system. It serves for researchers to browse, search, compare, apply for access, and download relevant census or survey datasets.
