Otds, edf & global types

  1. 1. OTDS, EDF & GlobalTypes Christoph Fuchs 25.02.2014
  2. 2. OTDS = Offener Touristischer Datenstandard EDF = Einheitliches Datenformat GlobalTypes = DRV GlobalTypes (DRV = Deutscher Reiseverband) Christoph Fuchs 25.02.2014
  3. 3. OTDS vs. EDF (DRV GlobalTypes are supported by both) Christoph Fuchs 25.02.2014
  4. 4. Uniform coding DRV GlobalTypes
  5. 5. DRV GlobalTypes ● describe properties of touristic goods and services ● “standard” introduced by DRV ● tackles the problem of comparing offers and prices in tourism
  6. 6. DRV GlobalTypes ● GlobalTypes provide a uniform coding of offers and services ● codes in form of XT## e.g. GT01
  7. 7. GT = GlobalType, ST = SubType, AT = AdditionalType
  8. 8. Examples GT03-MASS ⇒ Massage ST03-THMA ⇒ Thai-Massage GT03-MASS ⇒ Massage ST03-THMA ⇒ Thai-Massage AT03-EXCO ⇒ Fee required
  9. 9. Examples GT03-MASS ⇒ Massage ST03-THMA ⇒ Thai-Massage GT03-MASS ⇒ Massage ST03-THMA ⇒ Thai-Massage AT03-EXCO ⇒ Fee required ← GlobalType, “base Type” ← SubType, more specific than GlobalType (can not be used alone) ^ AdditionalType, can augment GlobalType OR SubType
  10. 10. Einheitliches Datenformat
  11. 11. ● product developed by peakwork ● XML based ● exchange of offer and product data ● first format to support DRV GlobalTypes EDF
  12. 12. ● You have to purchase the product to gain access to the EDF specification ● I did not do that ● However, OTDS seems to be very similar EDF
  13. 13. Offener Touristischer Datenstandard
  14. 14. OTDS ● “Offener touristischer Datenstandard” ● XML data format ● 31 associates
  15. 15. Associates
  16. 16. OTDS ● open and non-proprietary ● supports DRV GlobalTypes ● supports incremental updates
  17. 17. OTDS ● accomodation ● flight ● package prices ● transfer, rental car, insurance, parking information, ... ● includes all product and price rules
  18. 18. OTDS ● OTDS schema definition > 8000 lines of XSD ● Example definition from an OTDS presentation [0] One hotel 24.000 lines of XML
  19. 19. Touristic Data Formats before 2003 INFX (flat structure, only adult prices) AICP (flat structure, only adult prices) INFX2 (flat structure, total prices buggy) 2003 KATI (complex structure, only adult prices, specific to local promoter) 2010 EDF (complex structure, total prices, proprietary) 2011 OTDS (complex structure, total prices, open and free)
  20. 20. Conclusion ● DRV GlobalTypes uniform codes ⇒ What about global compatibility? ● EDF, closed XML data format by peakworks ● OTDS, open XML data standard developed collaboratively by the OTDS group
