Schema

Input

Type: Blank Node


An Input used during the Cycle.


Field Type Required Definition
term Term Yes

A reference to the Term describing the Input.

description string No

A description of the Input.

value array[number|null] No

The quantity of the Input. If an average, it should always be the mean. Can be a single number (array of length one) or an array of numbers with associated dates (e.g. representing an application schedule).

sd array[number|null] No

The standard deviation of value.

min array[number|null] No

The minimum of value.

max array[number|null] No

The maximum of value.

statsDefinition string No

What the descriptive statistics (sd, min, max, and value) are calculated across, or whether they are simulated or the output of a model. Spatial is descriptive statistics calculated across spatial units (e.g., pixels) within a region or country.

Possible values are: sites,cycles,replications,otherObservations,spatial,regions,simulated,modelled

observations array[number|null] No

The number of observations the descriptive statistics are calculated over, if different from the numberOfCycles specified in Cycle.

dates array[string] No

A corresponding array to value, representing the dates of the Inputs in ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD, YYYY-MM, YYYY, --MM-DD, or --MM).

startDate string No

For Inputs over periods different to Cycle, the start date of the Input (if different from the start date of the Cycle) in ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD).

endDate string No

For Inputs over periods different to Cycle, the end date of the Input (if different from the start date of the Cycle) in ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD).

inputDuration number No

The duration of the Input in days.

price number No

The price paid for this Input. The price should be expressed per the units defined in the term, for example per "kg active ingredient". The currency must be specified.

cost number No

The total cost of this Input (price x quantity), expressed as a positive value. The currency must be specified.

currency string No

The three letter currency code in ISO 4217 format.

properties List[Property] No

A list of Properties of the Input, which would override any default properties specified in term.

reliability integer No

An assessment of the reliability of these data following the pedigree matrix approach detailed by Edelen & Ingwersen (2019). (1) Verified (e.g. by on site checks, recalculation, or mass balance estimation) data based on measurements; (2) Verified data based on a calculation or non-verified data based on measurements; (3) Non-verified data based on a calculation; (4) Documented estimate; (5) Undocumented estimate. In different language, (1-2) can be considered primary data and (3-5) secondary.

methodModel Term No

A reference to the Term describing the method or model for acquiring or estimating these data.

methodModelDescription string No

A free text field, describing the method or model used for acquiring or estimating these data.

operation Term No

A reference to the Term describing the operation associated with this input (e.g. for the Input diesel the operation could be Soil decompaction, machine unspecified).

country Term No

The country where this Input came from.

region Term No

The region where this Input came from.

impactAssessment ImpactAssessment No

A reference to the node containing environmental impact data related to producing this product and transporting it to the Site.

source Source No

A reference to the Source of these data, if different from the defaultSource of the Cycle.
