This is nifty. To quote directly from the announcement:
EDItEUR has released an initial version of an online browser for the ONIX 3.0 codelists, at http://ns.editeur.org/onix
This interactive browser is multi-lingual – it’s launching with English, Spanish and Italian translations of the code lists, and other languages will be added as more translations become available. For Spanish and Italian speakers, it should pick your preferred language (as configured in your browser or locale preferences on your computer) automatically. If your preferred language is not yet available, it defaults to English.
The browser contains the latest version of the codelists, and will be kept up to date as new lists are issued every quarter. Small red bars highlight any deprecated codes.
The browser allows you to look up individual code lists and codes. You can click on a codelist to see the various codes it contains, and you can click on the star by individual codes to see the notes associated with the code. There’s a basic search facility that allows you to search for text in the code list headings or notes, or on the name of a data element (e.g. “ProductForm”). A button at the bottom allows you to show versioning information – the code list issue in which a new code was added. And if you want to return to the ‘top level’ list of codelists, you can click on the top ‘Heading’ of the table.
If you already use the Thema browser at http://ns.editeur.org/thema (note the new address), then the ONIX browser will be immediately familiar.
The ONIX browser is still likely to evolve a little. There will be further languages, and the ability to search by codelist number will be added soon. So take a look, and let us know if you find it useful, or if there are any improvements you would like to see.
Check it out!
