Data Curator Beta - what do you think?


#1

We’d love to hear your feedback on the Data Curator Beta

Using Data Curator open data creators can:

  • create and edit tabular data from scratch or from a template
  • open data from a CSV or Microsoft Excel file
  • open multiple related data tables from a Data Package
  • automatically correct common problems found in CSV and Excel files

Using data from any of these sources, you can:

  • automatically create a schema that describes the data fields
  • refine the schema to include extra data validation rules
  • save data as a valid CSV file in various CSV dialects

The schema enables you to validate the whole table at once

Version 1.0

Next we plan to add:

  • More table, provenance and data package properties to further describe the data
  • Foreign key validation across CSV files

Once the data is described and validated, you can share the data and its description by exporting a datapackage.zip file to:

  • publish on your open data portal
  • use as a template for others to make similar data

Open data consumers can use published Data Packages to:

  • view the data structure and provenance information to help determine if the data is fit for their purpose
  • download the data together with its metadata in a single zip file
  • use a suite of tools to work with the data
