Finding Datasets Just Got A Whole Lot Easier Thanks To Google

Just last week, Google released a new type of search engine specifically designed around the idea of helping people find data. It’s named “Dataset Search” and essentially it provides easy access to millions of datasets across thousands of data repositories on the web. Dataset Search is currently for everyone to use with easy access. Google stated the benefits this new launch specifically has for journalists and data scientists “To enable easy access to this data, we launched Dataset Search, so that scientists, data journalists, data geeks, or anyone else can find the data required for their work and their stories, or simply to satisfy their intellectual curiosity.” According to Search Engine Journal, this new Google engine search is largely dependent on the scheema markup for dataset providers that was rolled out in July.

Dataset Search is available in multiple languages and works just like any other search engine. Just type in what you’re looking for and Google will return relevant datasets.

What’s one way to cure the Monday blues? Spigot, Inc. knows the answer: La Croix!
