The purpose of this new service is to help academics, journalists and researchers unearth publicly available data that can aid in their projects.
Peviously the researchers used to depend on the site like the World Bank, NASA, and ProPublica or search engines like Kaggle . After the launch of Google’s new dataset search website, they will get a much better alternate.
The new tools’s user interface is same as Google search.
With this new tool you can search data such as “Cricket World Cup Winners”, “US presidents”, “Statistics of the World Economy” and so on.
The company explained that the new tool scrapes government databases, public sources, digital libraries, and personal websites to track down the datasets you’re looking for. If they’re structured using schema.org’s markup or similar equivalents described by the W3C, Google can find it. It already supports multiple languages and will add support for more of them soon.
So if you are an academic, researcher, scientist or a student working on your project, you can try the new data search on this page.
