This article is for anyone involved in preparing data for exchange on the Data Republic platform, usually analysts. For data to be accessed by others, it must be uploaded to the Data Republic platform and packaged for exchange in a project or commercialization via the Catalog.
In this article you will learn how to:
Prepare data for exchange
Data uploaded to the Data Republic platform must not contain any personally identifiable information (PII). All datasets must be de-identified.
For all projects:
- Upload your file to the Data Republic platform
- Create a database
- Create a view of your table (this step is optional; complete this step if you only want to share a view of the table, for e.g. you can apply filters, aggregations, joins, etc)
- Package your data for exchange. This involves referencing any the files, tables and/or views you want to share, not just data files. Access to data will not be provided until a data license is approved in a project.
Add the data package to your project
Add the package to a project so you can negotiate terms of data-use and apply a legal framework for a specific data exchange. You must be part of an existing project to complete this step; alternatively, anyone in your organization can select your package and add it to their project to negotiate a data exchange. A data licensing approval workflow will apply to all data exchanges.
Create a Data Listing if would like to list your data package for exchange in the Data Republic Catalog (marketplace) or your organization's Closed Catalog to increase discoverability of your dataset (across your organization).
