Introduction

This document details a web API for access to the live publication of Bathing Water information published by the Environment Agency for bathing waters in England that are monitored in order to meet UK reporting obligations under the EU Bathing Water Directive.

Bathing waters are places, designated by legislation, where there is a statutory requirement to monitor and report on the quality of bathing waters during the bathing-water season. The bathing water season runs from early May through to the end of September each year. During the season, weekly samples are collected from about 400 sampling points associated with bathing-waters in England. The samples are assessed in a lab. The weekly assessment results are both published in their own right and are used to produce an annual compliance assessment of how well each bathing-water complies with the requirements of the Revised EU Bathing Water Directive.

Changes

This document consoldidates API documentation previously available in two separate documents, Bathing Water Quality API Reference and Bathing Water Profile Reference

From the start of 2015 season reporting of bathing water quality for Welsh bathing waters has transitioned to a new site administered by Natural Resource Wales. Bathing water quality and profile information covering the whole of England and Wales prior to 2015 remain available here.

The data model for bathing water profiles, in-season and annual compliance assessments have been extended due to the completion of the transition to the Revised Bathing Water Directive (rBWD)

See detailed changelog at the end of this document for the most recent changes.


Data Model

The publication of bathing-water-quality information as linked data requires the creation or re-use of RDFS or OWL vocabularies both for quality assessment data and for supporting reference information about bathing-waters, their zones of influence and sampling-points.

title="Vocabularies, Reference and Assessment Information"
Vocabulary, Reference and Assessment Information

The diagram above illustrates the primary vocabularies and datasets components that comprise this linked data bathing water quality publication and their top level URI. Strictly, only the observation datasets contain bathing-water-quality information; the other components act as ‘infrastructure’ to enable its expression.

The diagram below summarises the vocabulary elements that are introduced in the following sections.

The vocabulary extract below (in turtle) together with the diagram above illustrates the use of the cube vocabulary for in-season bathing-water sample assessments.

The diagram below shows the overall structure of the profile linked data. The properties of profiles, standard language collections and features are described in this document.

title="Data Model"
Data Model

Versioning Model

Bathing water profiles and information about features may change. For example, corrections may be made to spellings or the location of a feature may be corrected. In this data model, bathing water profiles and features are versioned, that is, whenever a property of one of those resources is changed, then a new version of the resource is created. Different versions of the ‘same’ bathing water profile or feature have very similar URIs, differing only in their version component. The structure of this versioning is illustrated in the diagram below.

title="Versioning Model"
Versioning Model

The enduring resource is, in a sense, the thing that there are different versions of, say a bathing water profile or a feature. Each enduring resource is linked to each of its versions by a dcterms:hasVersion property. Each version is in turn linked back to its enduring resource by a dcterms:isVersionOf property.

Each version has a version:versionString property whose value is a label for the version. Conventionally this version string will also appear in the versioned resource’s URI.

Each version also has a versionInterval property which indicates the time interval for which the version is current. The time interval must have a hasBeginning# property which specifies the instant at which the versioned resource became current. If the version is no longer current, is must have a hasEnd property specifying the instant at which the versioned resource became no longer current. The interval may be thought of as closed at the beginning and open at the end, so that the end of one interval and the beginning of the next may share the same instant. In this case, the boundary instant is in the second interval but not in the first. Instants are described by inXSDDateTime properties whose values are dateTime typed literals.


Bathing Water, Zone of Influence and Sampling Point Reference Information

The major reference entities to which bathing-water-quality information needs to refer are the bathing-waters themselves and their sampling points. In addition we provide access to a zone-of-influence which indicates a region associated with a bathing-water where rain-fall may have a significant effect on water quality.

URI Patterns

The following URI patterns are used to designate instances of the given class, but bear in mind that whilst they may provide useful ’hint’s URI are in-general considered to be opaque (see cooluris).

C, G, I, F, N

Note that each group of classifications use different URI.

Post 2014 rBWD classifications

The transition to monitoring and reporting under the Revised Bathing Water Directive (rBWD) completed at the end of the 2014 bathing-water season. For the 2015 and subsequent bathing water season reporting and monitoring will according to the requirements of the revised bathing-water directive. As a consequence of this individual in-seasons sample assessments are NOT classified. There are only annual compliance assessments have classifications that represent the aggregation of the results from upto 4 years of in-season sampling.

discountable A boolean valued flag that indicates whether the sample assessment meets criteria that allow it to be discounted from annual compliance assessments. The absence of a value for this flag indicates that it the sample assessment may yet be judged to be discountable. However, once set as discountable true, or non-discountable, false the value of the flag is not expected to be changed. http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/discountable
discounted A boolean value which if set indicates that a discountable sample assessment has in fact been discounted (true) from use in annual compliance results or not (false). It expected that the decision that sets this flag is made at the end of corresponding bathing-water season for all discountable sample assessments during that season. Once the discounted flag has been set, whether true or false it retains that setting with respect to all annual compliance assessments to which it might contribute over the following 4 years. http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/discounted

complianceClassification

Annual bathing water quality compliance assessment classification:

Pre-2012 classifications

C, G(Higher) formerly G, I(Minimum) formerly I, F(Fail) formerly F, N

2012-2014 rBWD transitional classifications

C, G, I, F, N

Note that each group of classifications use different URI.

Post 2014 rBWD classifications

Excellent, Good, Sufficient, Poor. Insufficiently Sampled, New, and Closed

Under the Revised Bathing Water Directive, annual compliance classifications are aggregated over as many as 4 years of in-season sampling. Consequently both a new data-cube and new compliance codes are defined for the rBWD Monitoring regime.

Bathing Water Profile Reference Information

The major reference entities to which bathing-water-profile information needs to refer are the bathing-waters they describe and features, such as emergency storm overflow outlets, that may affect the water quality at a bathing water. For information about bathing-waters reference data, including Environment Agency regional organizations, see the bathing-water-quality API reference documentation.

Features are versioned following the versioningModel. Resources of type Enduring Feature are the enduring resources. Resources of type Feature are their versions.

Bathing Water Profiles

Bathing water profiles are essentially a collection of natural language statements about bathing waters, published by the Environment Agency. A bathing water profile has a year of publication or applicable year. New profiles may be published about a bathing water from time to time, the frequency depending on the assessment of the water quality at the bathing water, but not more than once a year. New profiles are considered to be new publications, not new versions of the same publication. However, once published, a profile may be updated to correct errors. A corrected profile is considered to be a new version of the profile for an applicable year.

Bathing water profiles follow the versioning model. Resources of type EnduringBathingWaterProfile are the enduring profiles. Resources of type BathingWaterProfile are their versions.

Bathing water profiles contain standard language which is common across many profiles. Individual profiles are linked to a standard language collection which has properties describing the standard language.

Linked Data A⁠P⁠I Framework

The Bathing Water Quality API is implemented as an LDA configuration.

Endpoints

The LDA framework provides for item and list endpoints.

Item endpoints are typically used as a way of realising linked-data URI for items of interest: vocabulary terms; things in the world – bathing waters, sampling points, zones of influence; and information items (documents, graphs, information objects) that describe those making use of vocabulary terms from one or more linked-data vocabularies.

List endpoints are used to generate pages that contain descriptions of items selected to meet particular criteria built in to the endpoint configuration and which may be augmented by parameters carried in the request URI. Request URI parameters may narrow the range of items presented in a response. A given list endpoint produces a series of pages which together traverse the set if items that meet the filter criteria for the endpoint augmented with filters from the URI.

Views

Both item and list endpoints can be configured with one or more view. A view is a projection of some part of the RDF graph that emanates from the selected item, in the case of an item endpoint, or from each item included in a response page generated by a list endpoint.

Item and List endpoints can be configured with one or more views which can be selected through the use of a common LDA URI parameter _view. Views are lists of property chains formed through the use of ‘.’ separated property short names. Pre-configured views can also be augmented with additional property chains through the use of the _properties LDA URI parameter. For example:

&_properties=samplingPoint.easting, samplingPoint.northing

will include the OSGB easting and northings (if any) associated with a sampling point (if any) associated with selected items (typically bathing waters).

&_properties=district.gssCode

will include the GSS geography code (if any) of a local authority district (if any) associated with selected items (typically bathing waters).

In the API reference below property chains associated with pre-configured API endpoint views are listed. The _properties provides a way for API users to augment any of the available or built-in views.

Built-in views that are operative for most available item and list endpoints are as follows:

View Description
basic Presents item type and label properties
description Presents all the properties of selected items, and of b-node objects linked to selected items and so-on following links as far URI node or Literal items. A so-called b-node closure
all As description, but including available labels for all objects that are mentioned.

Note that _view=description and particularly _view=all can generate large and time consuming queries when used in conjunction with slice listing endpoints (see below). This is because slices in general carry a large number of observations or assessments resulting in a large number of items to mention and/or to gather labels for presentation. Where possible technical measures are either in place or under development to prevent their use in circumstance where they would be of little utility at best.

Filters

For list endpoints, the item selection can be refined through the use of filter terms. For example, given the general bathing water list endpoint detailed below, the following URI will list all bathing water associated with a district whose GSS code is E07000188, i.e. Sedgemoor District.

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water?district.gssCode=E07000188

Similarly, the following URI will list all in-season sample assessments that have been withdrawn:

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water-quality/in-season/sample?recordStatus=withdrawal

or the following URI will list all in-season sample assessments that have sample assessment classification of Excellent.

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water-quality/in-season/sample?sampleAssessment.name=Excellent

LDA also provides mechanisms that enable value ranges to be expressed, so for example in order to list all the latest in-season sample assessments for bathing water sampling points that fall within a given northing and eastings bounding box, URI such as the following can be used.

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water-quality/in-season/latest?min-bwq_samplingPoint.easting=240209&max-bwq_samplingPoint.easting=293209&min-bwq_samplingPoint.northing=155718&max-bwq_samplingPoint.northing=212718

note the use of min-{P} and max-{P} to establish minimum and maximum filter range values for {P}. In this case {P} stands for the property chains bwq_samplingPoint.northing and bwq_samplingPoint.easting.

It is also possible to filter selected items based on the presence or absence of a property using the exists-{P}=<boolean> URI parameter. For example the following URI will list in-season SampleAssessment that have been replaced:

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water-quality/in-season/sample?exists-isReplacedBy=true

Similarly, the following URI lists SampleAssessments that have not been replaced:

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water-quality/in-season/sample?exists-isReplacedBy=false

Formats

Each LDA endpoint is also capable of delivering its responses in several formats which can be triggered through the use of HTTP content-negotiation or the use of an explicit .ext mechanism were the .ext is inserted at the end of the URI path and prior to any URI query component. e.g. reusing an earlier example, a JSON response can be generated using the following URI:

http://environment.data.gov.uk/doc/bathing-water.json?district.gssCode=E07000188

 

Extension Media Type Description
.rdf application/rdf+xml RDF/XML formatted data
.ttl text/turtle Terse RDF Triple Language formatted data
.xml text/xml LDA XML formatted data
.json application/json and text/javascript LDA JSON formatted data. Available both as JSON objects and JSONP callback scripts.
.html text/html HTML formatted data.
.text text/plain JSON formatted output presented with a text/plain media type.
.csv text/csv Comma separated value formatted data.

Language Support

LDA provides both configuration and URI parameter based mechanisms for setting the default language choices for information presented via a view and for information selected via a filter. The bathing-water quality API is configured to default to filter-on and present text literals tagged with as English or that are untaggged.

This configuration can be overridden using _lang and lang-{P} URI parameters – where {P} is a shortname for a property or a property chain. The value of the parameter is a comma separated list of language tag values. For this API, relevant language tag values are: en for English, cy for Welsh and none for untagged values.

lang-{P} affects the languages used in filter matches that involve the property whose short-name is {P}.

URI Parameter Setting Description
lang-name=en, none Filters that involve the property whose short-name is name match values tagged as English or that are untagged.
lang-mbox=none Filters that involve the property whose short-name is mbox match only untagged values.
_lang=en, cy, none Sets the default languages for all filter properties and view projected values as English, Welsh or untagged.
_lang=cy, none Sets the default languages for all filter properties and view projected values as Welsh or untagged.

In the case where there is are no values tagged with at least one of the configured languages, any available untagged values are presented instead.

The most useful values to use for the these parameters are en, none, the configured default, and en, cy, none which includes any text tagged as being Welsh in the output.

Common L⁠D⁠A U⁠R⁠I Parameters

URI Parameter Value Description
exists-{P} A boolean value parameter that filters items based on whether the given property chain, &{P}, can be bound.
min-{P} Sets an inclusive lower-bound filter on the value of the given property chain, {P}. Selected items must have a value for {P} that is greater than or equal to that given in the parameters value
max-{P} Sets an inclusive upper-bound filter on the value of the given property chain, {P}. Selected items must have a value for {P} that is less than or equal to that given in the parameter’s value
minEx-{P} Sets an exclusive lower-bound filter on the value of the given property chain, {P}. Selected items must have a value for {P} that is greater than that given in the parameter’s value
maxEx-{P} Sets an exclusive upper-bound filter on the value of the given property chain, {P}. Selected items must have a value for {P} that is less than that given in the parameter’s value
_lang A comma separated list of languages used for both filter based selection and value projection in response data. Default: en, none
_pageSize The requested maximum number of items to be on a requested list endpoint page.
_page The page number of a requested list endpoint page.
_properties A comma separated list of properties or property chains that are added to any default or selected views.
_sort A comma separated list of property shortnames or property chains which are used to order the items returned by a list endpoint. A leading '-' character on any property or property chain selects a descending rather than ascending order.
_view A view name that selects a pre-configured view that moderates the amount of detail presented about a given item in a resultset.
callback A javascript function named used when generating a JSONP response.

More details about common LDA URI parameters can be found in the LDA Specification

It should be evident from this simple introduction that the LDA framework provides a powerful URI based mechanism for selecting and projecting information held with in an RDF store for use in implementing linked data URI pages and for building data consuming web applications.


A⁠P⁠I Reference

This reference is divided into three sections, one each for API endpoint collected at environment.data.gov.uk and location.data.gov.uk respectively and a final section that acts as a cross reference for shortnames that can be use to build property-chains for both views (&_properties=) and filters (&{P}={V}) as part of a URI based API call. Property chains can only be followed through items that have the corresponding properties. The Datamodel section earlier listed the properties that may be used from each of the available entry types.

Within each of the first two sub sections below, API endpoints are organised by the item type that they return and that share configured views. Each section lists:

  • the item types returned by the corresponding endpoints;
  • endpoint descriptions including URI Templates, endpoint type (item or list), a description and configured views – default view name are emboldened;
  • view descriptions that list the property chains configured for the corresponding view;
  • a selection of example URI based calls that in some cases illustrate the use of URI parameters to add filters that make more particular selections, and property chains to extend views.

Assessment and Suspension Datasets

Dataset Organisation

As of the start of the 2015 bathing-water season the dataset structure described here has been rendered largely irrelevant. Natural Resources Wales have resposnibility for monitoring and reporting on bathing-water quality for Welsh bathing waters. Welsh bathing water quality information is now published separately at: http://environment.data.gov.uk/wales/bathing-waters. The structure anticipated below remains in place however its is now populated solely by the Environment Agency and as of 2015 will only be updated with new information about bathing-water quality in England. Existing information about bathing-water quality in England and Wales prior to 2015 remains in place.

The previous dataset organisation has been extended in preparation for bathing-water quality data and reference information being published by multiple monitoring bodies within the UK, for example SEPA in Scotland and a future Single Environmental Body for Wales.

The top level in-season sample assessment and annual compliance assessment cube datasets are retained however, they are each formulated as an aggregation of underlying subsets with an in-season assessment subset and an annual compliance subset per monitoring body. Dataset slices remain formulated over the entire aggregation as before, however individual observations (SampleAssessments and ComplianceAssessments) are linked to the per monitoring body subset. Baseline and incremental updates of per monitoring body in-season and annual compliance dataset are formulated as distinct subsets of the corresponding per monitoring body cubes.

SuspensionOfMonitoring are organised similarly as a hierarchy of VoID datasets rooted in the top-level bathing-water-quality dataset with an over all suspension-of-monitoring with per monitoring body aggregation subsets eg. http://environment.data.gov.uk/data/bathing-water-quality/eaew/suspension which collects subordinate baseline and incremental suspension of monitoring datasets.

This is illustrated in the diagram below:

Annual Compliance Assessment Endpoints

Item Type: Annual ComplianceAssessment

In order to accomodate a the transition to the monitoring and reporting regime of the Revised Bathing Water Directive (rBWD), new per-regime compliance assessment datasets have been created. As of the start of the 2015 bathing water season, annual compliance assessments are reported under the rBWD regime. In addtion, projected rBWD compliance assessments for earlier years (2014 and earlier) are also available. rBWD compliance assessments include and assessmentQualifier property that indicates whether they are actual-assessment or a projected-assessment rBWD compliance assessments are accessed using the URI patterns that include a -{regime} component. Pre-BWD compliance assessments, under the earlier 1976 bathing-water directive, are accessed using the URI patterns without the -{regime} component. The -[regime} component in the URI patterns below is intended to anticipate future changes in monitoring and assessment regimes.

Suspension of Monitoring Endpoints

Item Type: SuspensionOfMonitoring

These API endpoints are organised such that succcessive truncations of the URI for a SuspensionOfMonitoring record yield lists of records that are progressively less constrained by the parameters truncated from the URI. The table below is organised to emphasise this effects of such truncation.

For endpoints that have two similar URI patterns starting /doc/... and /data/..., the /data/... URI will 303 redirect to the corresponding /doc/... URI. The /doc/... pages are constructed by the API framework whereas any for /data/... URI that respond directly (without redirection) correspond to an item in the datastore. Using /data/... URI to access the listed of endpoints below will incur an extra network round trip that can be avoided by using the corresponding /doc/... URI by preference.

Advice Against Bathing (AAB) Endpoints.

Added for bw-api v0.6

The following endpoints are designed to support the disemination of a single “advice against bathing” message arising from the presence of any of the following being active at bathing waters:

In general, at given bathing water, these conditions will give rise to the presence of a value for:

  • latestOpenPollutionIncident
  • latestActiveSuspension
  • latestRiskPrediction

respectively.

So-called “advice against bathing” is not materialised within the data. Instead it implied by the presense of any one of the above indicators. The AAB endpoints have two broad flavours: Endpoints that list bathing-waters where there is advice against bathing; and endpoints that list the situations (pollution-incidents, suspensions-of-monitoring and/or short-term-pollution-risk forcasts) that support the giving of “advice-against-bathing”.

/doc/bathing-water-quality/advice-against-bathing/bathing-waters-at/{yyMMddHHmmss} List Returns a list of bathing-waters where there was ‘advice-against-bathing’ at the given data/time bathing-water

The default views for these endpoints are such that for ‘situation’ oriented views the view extends to the bathing-water associated with the ‘situation’ and for bathing-water views the view extends to the ‘situations’ that give rise to ‘advice-against-bathing’.

Short-term pollution risk prediction Endpoints

Item Type: RiskPrediction

These API endpoints are organised such that succcessive truncations of the URI for a RiskPrediction yield lists that are progressively less constrained by the parameters truncated from the URI. The table below is organised to emphasise this effects of such truncation.

For endpoints that have two similar URI patterns starting /doc/... and /data/..., the /data/... URI will 303 redirect to the corresponding /doc/... URI. The /doc/... pages are constructed by the API framework whereas any for /data/... URI that respond directly (without redirection) correspond to an item in the datastore. Using /data/... URI to access the listed of endpoints below will incur an extra network round trip that can be avoided by using the corresponding /doc/... URI by preference.

Standard Language Collection Endpoints

Item type: StandardLanguageCollection

Standard Language Collections were originally intended to carry the common ‘boiler-plate’ statements common to a collection bathing water profiles typically published together in the same year. However, there was an evolving need to vary the standat language collections or a regional basis or even on a per bathing water basis. The URI patterns for standard language collections have been revised from embedding {year}:{ver} to additionally include a sampling point identifier,
{year}-{bwspid}:{ver} so that different bathing waters can provide different standard language collections.

Detailed Change Log

Changes since B⁠W⁠Q A⁠P⁠I v0.1

In-Season Sample Assessments and Annual Compliance Assessments

As of the 2012 bathing water season, monitoring of bathing waters in the England and Wales is transitioning to the use of the Revised Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC) – rBWD. During this transition, which last until the end of the 2014 bathing water season, bathing water quality will be reported using the codes of the Bathing Water Directive (76/0160/EEC) - whilst using the determinands of the rBWD.

This leads to two sets of additions to the modelling of in-season bathing-water sample assessments and annual compliance assessments.

Firstly, the following additional properties are defined for in-season bathing-water sample assessments

Property Short Name Description Property URL
intestinalEnterococciCount The number of colonies of intenstinal enterococci grown per 100ml water sample http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/intestinalEnterococciCount
intestinalEnterococciQualifier moreThan, lessThan or actual count qualifier for intestinalEnterococciCount. http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/intestinalEnterococciQualifier
escherichiaColiCount The number of colonies of escherichia coli grown per 100ml water sample http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/escherichiaColiCount
escherichiaColiQualifier moreThan, lessThan or actual count qualifier for escherichiaColiCount. http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/escherichiaColiQualifier

Secondly, an extended set of compliance classifications have been defined for use during transition to the rBWD. Whilst these classification deliberately share letter codings (notations) with the pre-transition classification used prior to the 2012 bathing water season, they are different classifications and are labelled differently:

Pre-2012 cBWD Compliance categories URI
G(Higher) formerly G http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/G
I(Minimum) formerly I http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/I
F(Fail) formerly F http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/F
C http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/C
N http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bathing-water-quality/N

 

2012-2014 cBWD Transition Compliance categories URI
G http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bwq-cc-2012/G
I http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bwq-cc-2012/I
F http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bwq-cc-2012/F
C http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bwq-cc-2012/C
N http://environment.data.gov.uk/def/bwq-cc-2012/N

Post transition categories for use in 2015 and beyond are not yet defined for in season assessments.

All these compliance categories are defined as instances of the class Compliance, itself a subclass of SKOS Concept and as members of the SKOS ConceptScheme
compliance.

These compliance categories fall in the range of sampleClassification and complianceClassification. Their complianceCodeNotation be used in API filter expressions to select sample or annual compliance assessments that bear a code of “G”, “I”, “F”, “C” or “N” eg.

sampleAssessment.complianceCodeNotation=G

 

Bathing Water Reference Data

Several additional fields have been added to the reference information about bathing waters in order to facilitate the publication of more detailed bathing water profiles as linked data. New properties are indicated in the table in the section on BathingWater Properties.

Map Bounding Boxes (Envelopes)

New envelope spatial objects are provided that convey map extent bounding boxes for use in the presentation of bathing water profiles. This leads extension of the data model described in the section on Envelope Properties and to the location API as described in the section on Envelope Endpoints.

In-Season Sample and Annual Compliance Assessment Dataset Organisation

The organistion of SampleAssessment and ComplianceAssessment datasets has been extended as describe in the section on Dataset Organisation

Listing APIs for Bathing Water, SamplingPoint, ZoneOfInfluence.

The dataset may contain Bathing Waters that have been de-designated. Following API list endpoints only list only items that are related to currenlt designated bathing waters, i.e. bathing waters that have not been de-designated.

http://location.data.gov.uk/doc/ef/ZoneOfInfluence/bwzoi.eaew

De-designated bathing waters, sampling points and zones of influence for de-designated bathing waters can be located through the vocabulary listing endpoints with an appropriate filter:

Changes since B⁠W⁠Q A⁠P⁠I v0.2

The Revised Bathing Water Directive (rBWD) includes provision for the suspension of routine monitoring during abnormal situations. The changes added for v0.2 made no provison for the reporting of such suspensions of monitoring.

The changes added for v0.3 are the addition of a new class, SuspensionOfMonitoring detailed at Suspension Of Monitoring above and its associated vocabulary, dataset and API endpoints.

Changes since B⁠W⁠Q A⁠P⁠I v0.3

Data model and API extensions have been added to support the linked-data publication of short-term pollution risk predictions.

Changes since B⁠W⁠Q A⁠P⁠I v0.4

In-Season and Annual Compliance Assessments

From 2015 the monitoring and reporting regime has full transitioned to the Revised Bathing Water Directive (rBWD). In order to provide some continuity with pre-2015 annual compliance assessments projected assessments have been made to rBWD standards for a number of years prior to 2015. As a result of this change in regime and in anticipation of future regime changes Annual Compliance Assessments have been organised into per-regime data cubes. The orginal compliance assessment data set at http://environment.data.gov.uk/data/bathing-water-quality/compliance remains for Compliance Assessments reported prior to 2015. For Compliance Assessments reported under the rBWD regime, a new Compliance Assessment data cube has been set up at: http://environment.data.gov.uk/data/bathing-water-quality/compliance-rBWD which includes both projected and actual compliance assessments.

From 2015, in-season sample assessments will not be classified and will no carry a value for sampleClassification.

In-season sample assessments have been extended to include discountable and discounted flags to indicate which in-season sample assessments could be discounted from use in annual-compliance assessments and which in-season sample assesments have been so discounted.

The data model for compliance assessments has been extended to include:

The API configuration has been extended to cover all of these changes.

rBWD Compliance Classifications

A revised set of compliance classification codes are use for rBWD compliance classifications.

Changes since B⁠W⁠P A⁠P⁠I v0.1

  • Bathing water profiles have been extended with a number of extra properties (see here ).

Changes since (combined) BW A⁠P⁠I v0.1

The combined API version number as been updated to v0.6 so that version numbering follows more naturally form predecessors (bwq-api v0.5 and bwp-api v0.2).
