SSHOC Dataverse team is working on the extension of the Dataverse data repository with new tools intended for the DDI community. DDI explorer was fully integrated in the latest version of Dataverse and introduced to the CESSDA partners as a part of basic functionality that can be used both locally or deployed in the Cloud.

The new DDI converter tool was designed in order to help DDI community to migrate their datasets to Dataverse from other systems like NESSTAR and use DDI explorer features to browse data visually and do basic statistical analysis online.

The migration process relies on the XSLT mappings curated by DDI community and reused by the networked application that can be connected to any Dataverse instance.
