Hi, it’s been a while since I posted last! The Tableau Public team has been busy launching author profiles (here’s mine) and expanding the free application’s data limit from 100k rows to 1M rows, so I haven’t posted very often this summer. After wrapping up another project I’m working on, I’ll pick it back up again here at DataRemixed.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share a handy dandy tool that helps users find Open Data sites around the world.

In researching sites to give users who are looking to find data to play with, I came across a data.gov website called “Open Data Sites” that provides a csv file containing a bunch of links to sites (292 294 of them) from different countries (48 50 different ones, to be exact). To get to the sites, you have to download the csv, open it, and click the links. Not the best workflow, so I created this viz to ‘lean out’ the process, which I hope you also find useful:

If you know of other useful sites to find publicly available data sets, I’d love it if you’d leave a comment for everyone else’s benefit.

Thanks for stopping by,
