This is the reference page for the XML element activity-description. See also the relevant overview page: Geography

Definition

A description that qualifies the activity taking place at the location. This should not duplicate information provided in the main activity description, and should typically be used to distinguish between activities at multiple locations within a single iati-activity record.

Attributes

@xml:lang

ISO 2 letter code specifying the language of text in this element.

This value must be on the Language codelist.

Example Usage

Example usage of activity-description within context of location:

  <location ref="AF-KAN">
   <location-id vocabulary="G1" code="1453782" />
   <name>Location name</name>
   <description>Location description</description>
   <activity-description>A description that qualifies the activity taking place at the location</activity-description>
   <administrative level="1" code="1453782" vocabulary="G1" />
   <point srsName="http://www.opengis.net/def/crs/EPSG/0/4326">
    <pos>31.616944 65.716944</pos>
   </point>
   <exactness code="1"/>
   <location-reach code="1" />
   <location-class code="2"/>
   <feature-designation code="PRNQ"/>
  </location>

It may be appropriate to repeat the activity-description in other languages using additional language elements. In this example, the language en has been set in the ‘’iati-activity’’ element:

  <location ref="AF-KAN">
   <location-id vocabulary="G1" code="1453782" />
   <name>Location name</name>
   <name xml:lang="fr">Emplacement du nom</name>   
   <description>Location description</description>
   <description xml:lang="fr">Description de l'emplacement</description>
   <activity-description>A description that qualifies the activity taking place at the location</activity-description>
   <activity-description xml:lang="fr">Une description qui qualifie l'activité ayant lieu à cet emplacement</activity-description>
   <administrative level="1" code="1453782" vocabulary="G1" />
   <point srsName="http://www.opengis.net/def/crs/EPSG/0/4326">
    <pos>31.616944 65.716944</pos>
   </point>
   <exactness code="1"/>
   <location-reach code="1" />
