New Features in Dataset Search

Science Innovations

Google's Dataset Search now has over 25 million indexed pages of data sets that enable users to search for datasets on a particular topic and find links to where the data is. For example, a user interested in skiing can find data on revenue of ski resorts or injury rates, the speed of fastest skiers and the participation numbers. Among the new features added in Dataset Search includes filtering based on the type of results required by the user- for example, tables, images or text or whether the dataset is available free from the provider. New topics added in Datasets are geosciences, biology, and agriculture. Dataset Search also gives us a snapshot of the data out there on the Web. Governments publish their data and describe it with schema.org on their websites. The United States leads in the number of open government datasets available, with more than 2 million. And the most popular data formats? Tables are the most popular with more than 6 million of them on Dataset Search.
