OIPA stands for Openaid IATI Parser and API. It has been developed within the OpenAid NL project and runs as an open webservice. Anyone can use it with the data residing in the OIPA network.
OIPA enables IATI standard compliant datasets to easily parse and interface IATI compliant data. OIPA runs as a webservice, which is being reffered to as the OIPA network. OIPA consists of several software components which are dependent on each other.
Parser makes the IATI compliant available xml datasets available in the non xml database MySQL.
The datamodel residing in MySQL contains different IATI sets that have been mapped in the parser.
The API enables web-platforms to easily interface using REST calls to pick up data.
