Projects on data.world gives you a way to keep all of your project data and analysis in a single place. Once you've created your project, there are three ways to connect it to data and files:
1. Find and link existing data.world datasets:
From your project page, click the 'Link a dataset' button under the data sources section:
Enter a search for your data, and if there are results you'd like to link to your project, simply click onto the dataset to select it (just in the white-space), and click the 'Link dataset' button:
That's it, you'll now be able to see and access the dataset under the data sources section of your projects page as well as the workspace:
2. Create and link your own data.world datasets:
If you have data that might be used on other data projects, it probably makes sense to create a dataset and then link it to your project. This will allow you to link and access the dataset from multiple projects without having to upload over and over. If the dataset is public, other data.world members can also find and use your data!
Follow the steps to create your dataset. Once your dataset is created (with files added!), follow the instructions above for finding and linking datasets from your project, or click the 'Add to project' button at the top of your dataset page:
Select the project from the dropdown menu, or click 'Create new project' to create one on the fly:
3. Upload files and data directly to the project:
Uploading files and data directly to your data project is great for supporting materials such as notebooks, project specific data and documentation, reports, findings and so on. Add files directly to your project by clicking the 'Add files' button under the data sources area on your project page:
You'll be given the option to upload files from your computer or add files from a URL (Google Sheets or Github for example).
Follow the steps for your selected method and once the files are added, they'll be added to 'Project files' in the data sources section of your projects page as well as the workspace:
