Data Series Definition¶
Gro defines a “data series“ as a series of data points over time. Each data series is defined by a unique selection of:
For example, if you select
metric=Production Quantity (mass),
source=FAO, that would be one data series. Partner_region is optional and used only in series that represent a flow between two places, e.g. if the metric is exports, the region would be the exporter and the partner_region would be the importer.
To get all the available data series for a given selection of entities, use the
get_data_series function as described in the Searching Data section.
