Not enough information available to calculate risk score. You need at least 6 known properties.

Total = 20 / 2 properties


How is this calculated?

The data you see here has all come from the Preserv2 registry and more specifically the risk analysis service. Available here in RDF the risk analysis services selects specific information from the registry according to a profile (in this case the default one) and outputs in in RDF. This page displays a summary of this data which has also been process to find a score relating to this data.

Each piece of select data is either about the format itself or it's related supertype format, e.g. PDF 1.6 is a type of PDF. From this point data is handled in 4 ways with all final risk levels being either low (green), medium (orange) or high (red). To calculate the final risk score low risks are worth 1 point, medium - 5 points and high - 10 points. The total is then divided by the number of properties which counted towards this score to give the final risk score. Items with lines through them are not counted due to better or more accurate overiding information being available in a different category.

The risk boundaries are:

  • <3.51 = Low Risk
  • >3.50 and <7.00 = Medium Risk
  • >=7.00 = High Risk
