I’ve seen a few topics here discussing the conversion of flat files into hierarchical IATI data. I’m attempting to do the reverse, and I’m interested in hearing your feedback.
The original idea was to create a flat file from IATI transactions and budgets that could fill-in for the gaps in the CRS (i.e. 2017 and beyond).
Here’s my work so far: https://github.com/akmiller01/iati_flat_testing
I’m not sure if this could be worked into a multi-purpose tool, given that whoever wants to flatten IATI data probably has different use-cases in mind, but maybe we could strip down some of the logic of splitting values by sectoral/recipient percentages.
