XML Data Exchange Standard

XML Data Exchange Standard

Implementation Guide

The NAACCR XML standard defines a data exchange format where NAACCR Standards Volume II data items are encoded in XML elements.

Questions, comments, concerns? See the NAACCR XML Standard Forum.

The NAACCR XML data exchange standard is an XML syntax replacement for the NAACCR fixed-width data exchange standard as outlined in the NAACCR Strategic Management Plan. Both fixed-width and XML data exchange standards are currently supported for data exchange, while a timeline for transitioning completely to XML is under development.

The XML Exchange Plus software allows you to:

  • Run EDITS on NAACCR XML files and generate GenEDITS style reports
  • Manage NAACCR User Dictionaries
  • Convert fixed-width NAACCR files to NAACCR XML

The GitHub project will allow you to access:

  • a graphical tool for converting fixed-width NAACCR files to XML
  • a Java library for reading and writing NAACCR XML

NAACCR Plan to Implement XML

The NAACCR Plan to Implement XML includes 8 tasks to achieve the transition from the Standards Volume II fixed-width data exchange format to NAACCR XML, and includes a timeline at the end of the document.
