Upgrade: FactPages and associated services
A minor upgrade of the FactPages and changes to the fact services will be made on Wednesday 14 December. The FactPages and services may therefore become unavailable part of this day.
The major change in this upgrade is an improved overview of the follow up on Surveys, from planned to finished, sorted by date. This will be available under "Survey", "Page view" – chapter "Latest updates".
Corresponding changes will be made under "Survey", "Table view", "Last updates". The headings and tag names will be new. The new tag names are: "seaProgressNotesDate", "seaSurveyName", "seaProgressNotesKind", "seaProgressNotesDescription", "seaNpdidSurvey".
Apart from this, better help text is added when searching; additionally some links have been corrected and basic software has been upgraded.
The data type of tables in downloadable FGDB and REST services has also been changed, see factmaps 3 changelog for details.
