You can publish all and any kind of data as Data packages. It's as simple as 1-2-3:
- Get your data together
- Add a
datapackage.jsonfile to wrap those data files up into a useful whole (with key information like the license, title and format)
- [optional] Share it with others, for example, by uploading the data package online
Get your data together in one folder (you can have data in subfolders of that folder too if you wish).
datapackage.json is a small file in JSON format that gives a bit of
information about your dataset. You'll need to create this file and then place
it in the directory you created.
Don't worry if you don't know what JSON is - we provide some tools that can automatically create your this file for you.
There are 2 options for creating the
Option 1: Use the online datapackage.json creator tool - just answer a few questions and give it your data files and it will spit out a datapackage.json for you to include in your project
Option 2: Do it yourself - if you're familiar with JSON you can just create this yourself. Take a look at the Data Package tutorial.
