As of 18 May 2017, various files (e.g. SQlite, CSV) derived from FracFocus.org’s May 2017 FracFocusRegistry have been downloaded, extracted, transformed, loaded, archived, and their respective links posted to FrackingData’s FracFocus Data Page .
This time, FracFocus posted their SQL Server backup on 15 May 2017, about 4 weeks later than its previous posting of 17 Apr 2017.
Once again, of significance this time was that the download of the files from the FracFocus.org website and their subsequent extract, transform, load, archiving, and exporting to CSV, SQLite, and PostgreSQL files was performed by a Windows batch script without human intervention. This automated method shaved hours from the extract, transform, load, archive, and export process.
When this Windows batch file is sufficiently stable, and I’ve soft-coded the data-cleansing views into the script itself, I’ll post a link to it in the Source Code section of this blog. Soft-coding of the data-cleansing views is the last hurdle to publishing this script.
