NHGIS Shapefiles names (Metadata vs. Workflow Exp)

Hello! I have a quick question regarding the naming conventions for shapefiles; in the metadata, shapefiles have a naming structure along the lines of 'geog_extent'_'geog_level'_'year'_'basis'. However, the workflow example has a different naming structure.

What is the correct naming structure for POSTing data requests for shapefiles?

Thank you!


It appears that the developer documentation here failed to update with the previous release of the API. The shapefiles page here does correctly indicate the naming structure, which matches the metadata. The documentation is being updated now and should reflect the change shortly.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
