Format of data sets

Description of the data types

ECLASS has introduced with release 7.0 many new data types that might not be interpretable by every system. In this case, ECLASS recommends to distinguish between at least BOOLEAN, REAL , INTEGER (including count, measure and currency) and STRING properties. ECLASS sees STRING as a suitable substitute for all other data types that are not interpretable by a system (STRING_TRANSLATABLE, URL, DATE, TIME, TIMESTAMP, RATIONAL, RATIONAL_MEASURE). This is restricted to the internal usage. When exchanging data they should be transferred according to these datatypes as otherwise receiving systems might not be able to interpret them correctly.

You can find a complete description of the data types used in ECLASS here: Data type (Property)
