To enable easy access to this data, Google has 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.
Around the web
Making it easier to discover datasetsSimilar to how Google Scholar works, Dataset Search lets you find datasets wherever they're hosted, whether it's a publisher's site, a digital library, or an author's personal web page. To create Dataset search, we developed guidelines for dataset providers to describe their data in a way that Google (and other search engines) can better understand the content of their pages.Google
Google launches new search engine to help scientists find the datasets they needGoogle's goal has always been to organize the world's information, and its first target was the commercial web. Now, it wants to do the same for the scientific community with a new search engine for datasets. The service, called Dataset Search, launches today, and will be a companion of sorts to Google Scholar, the company's popular search engine for academic studies and reports.
