Organizations on data.world

by | Aug 31, 2016 | Data catalogs

One of the most important factors in the success of a platform like data.world is what we call “data liquidity”. Central to our vision for data.world is to become the first stop to answer the question: I wonder if there is a dataset about _________?. The social nature of data.world and the immediate enhancements to uploaded data have meant steady and increasing dataset contributions from our users. In addition to crowdsourcing the world’s best datasets, we have been cultivating relationships with organizations that steward large collections of high value data. These include governmental organizations, educational institutions, municipalities and states, and corporations.

Today we’re excited to introduce you to a few organizations that are early adopters of data.world. We’ve also made some enhancements to their pages on the site to make it easy to learn more about these organizations and the data they are making available. Here are a few organizations, each a pioneer in the open data space, that we’re excited to feature on data.world. Feel free to explore each one and the dive into the data!

We have some really exciting data partnerships to announce in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
