Datasets

The Datasets tile on the Organization Profile Page is your portal to all the datasets owned by your organization and the metadata about them. If your organization uses our metadata catalog, all the metadata captured for your organization's data sources can be found here. This is also where all of the datasets containing your data--both stored on data.world and from virtual connections--are located.

Clicking the Datasets tile opens the Resources tab that shows a filtered list of all your organization's datasets. There you can see:

  • Name of the dataset

  • Who created it

  • When it was last updated

  • Other details, such as a brief description of the dataset, the number of files and tables in the dataset, and the number of projects that use the dataset.

    You can use this information to then decide if you need to navigate to the dataset to explore it further.
