Connect to data

With data.world there are several ways you can interact with your data.

  • Connection Manager - Our in-platform data and metadata connection interface. There is a connection manager interface for many of our data sources, and new ones are continually added.

  • Data.world catalog collectors - These collectors run on a command line, in a script, or through a YAML file and can be configured to meet your needs.

  • Virtual/live connections to your data - Allow you to run queries against your data and analyze it without needing to move it into data.world. Live connections can be created with Connection manager, or 3rd-party tools.
