Worldwide Open Data Sites
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,
