Just Testing :P

        <div id="render"></div><br/>
        <script src=""></script>
            window.onload = function () {
              sdmx.embed({"dataservice":"ABS", "dataflowAgency":"ABS", "dataflowId":"ABS_OAD_COUNTRY", "dataflowVersion":"1.0", "dataflowName":"Visitor arrivals and resident returns by country", "dataflowNameLang":"en", "structureAgency":"ABS", "structureId":"ABS_OAD_COUNTRY", "structureVersion":"1.0", "dimensions":{"CAT_TRAVELLER":{"concept":"CAT_TRAVELLER", "typeid":14}, "COUNTRY":{"concept":"COUNTRY", "typeid":10, "typename":"BoundToDropdown", "clientSide":false, "flat":true, "perCentOfId":null}, "TSEST":{"concept":"TSEST", "typeid":10, "typename":"BoundToDropdown", "clientSide":false, "flat":true, "perCentOfId":null}, "FREQUENCY":{"concept":"FREQUENCY", "typeid":10, "typename":"BoundToDropdown", "clientSide":false, "flat":true, "perCentOfId":null}}, "time":{"concept":"TIME", "typeid":18, "typename":"BoundToTimeX", "lastTime":0, "singleLatestTime":false, "chooseTime":true, "start":957458376155, "end":1462379976155}, "values":{"OBS_VALUE":{"concept":"OBS_VALUE", "typeid":2}}, "adapter":{"typeid":1001, "name":"RechartsSeriesSparkline"}});

I would just like to mention that the sdmx-js javascript sdmx client, now supports a lot more providers, and shows data in a pivot table (pivotUI.js)

Here is how some providers do it;
2.0 ABS : statistical usage warning on DataSet but no copyright warning on DataSet, No copyright notice on any structures
2.0 IStat: no copyright notice on Data, No copyright notice on structure
2.0 OECD: copyright in xml comment in message ID in data and structure, copyright in annotations on KeyFamily in list of keyfamilies, copyright in annotation on DataSet
2.0 Knoema: copyright in api documentation, no copyright notice on data or structure
2.1 ESTAT: no copyright notice in structure or data message
2.1 INSEE: no copyright notice in structure or data message

I think there are a couple of main ways of doing it;
as an annotation tag associated with the DataStructure and DataSet (you can also place annotations on codelists, concepts & just about everything else!)
Personally I think that for sdmx 2.1 files, copyright messages could also be placed in the footer as a TextType entry
sdmx 2.0 doesn't have a footer at all.. so you could only use Annotations

probably safest to put copyright notices as an annotation on whichever thing you want to claim copyright over (DataStructure,Codelist,Code,ConceptScheme,Concept,DataSet)
please, whatever you do.. dont just add a custom attribute to the DataSet tag... this for example; <DataSet copyright="me"> or <DataSet note="copyright(c) 2016 me">
this mixes your copyright notice up with columns in the dataset...

this is taken from near the end of an ABS SDMX 2.0 CompactData file;
                        <common:AnnotationTitle>Statistical usage warning</common:AnnotationTitle>
                        <common:AnnotationText>ABS.Stat beta is continuing to be developed.  Data will be updated as soon as possible following its 11:30 am release on the ABS website.</common:AnnotationText>

you can add your own custom Annotations with different Titles and different AnnotationTexts
such as;

<common:AnnotationText>Copyright (c) 2016 me</common:AnnotationText>
<common:AnnotationText>Creative Commons By Attribution License 2.0</common:AnnotationText>

When generating / disseminating CL's and datasets, is there a recommendation for the inclusion of copyright and license information?

I have a question about the sdmx-json spec...
in the spec, there is an annotations array, this array can contain multiple annotations,

in sdmx-ml, annotations can be attached to either dataset, series or observation,

in sdmx-json is the fact that an annotation attached to an observation lost in the translation from sdmx-ml to sdmx-json? I can't see any way to put in the sdmx-json that the annotation is attached to an observation?? all the annotations are grouped together in the array with no field on the observation to denote that a particular annotation is associated with that observation?

Thanks in advance for clearing things up for me..

Here are some statistics from the International Labour Organisation on unemployment around the world...

I think this is unique because the browser's Accept-Language header is used to choose the language of the visual...

I have added a database to my SDMX visualisation.. and now you can save and load visualisations, search by categories... at this page..

I am interested in feedback..

I have now got an example of plotting sdmx data on a map....
the demo is here;
  1. Choose ABS as SDMX service. (next)
  2. Choose any Census Cube (any labeled 'T' with a number or 'B' with a number) (next)
  3. Change the 'Region' or 'ASGS2011' dimension to 'Geospatial'
      Change TimeX to 'TimeDropDown'
      Change Observation from 'ContinuousY' to 'ContinuousColour' (next)
  4. Choose 'Map 1' as adapter(next)
  6. Change the 'State' field to a state, and the "Region Type' to something like 'Statistical Area Level 2'
      and change the measure to something you are interested in (this varies for each cube) (click query)
  5. Wait some time for the vectors to load, this can be up to 2 minutes! (30mb geojson file)
     On some browsers (chrome, latest firefox) subsequent queries hit the local cache rather than download again
     so it gets faster after the first load.
   6. Send me feedback! I am interested in what other people would find useful / difficult
     (yes.. i know the bindings screen is a nightmare to use... I will make it simpler)
