International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) XML Schemas
This directory contains version 2.02 of the IATI XML schemas, effective 2015-12-07. More information about these schemas is available at http://iatistandard.org
This directory contains the following files:
|iati-activities-schema.xsd||XML Schema for describing aid activities (e.g. projects).|
|iati-organisations-schema.xsd||XML schema for describing aid organisations and their budgets.|
|iati-common.xsd||A supplementary schema with common IATI markup. Must be in the same directory as the above.|
|xml.xsd||A supplementary schema that must be in the same directory as the above.|
|iati-registry-record-schema.xsd||An application-specific extension schema for importing documents into the IATI registry.|
|tests/||Unit tests for the schemas.|
The tests include a series of short XML documents that should pass or file when parsed against the schemas in this distribution. The shell scripts for running the tests rely on a Unix environment with the bash shell and the xmllint utility, but the test documents will work with any schema-aware XML parser. We will add unit tests as schema development continues.
