Making your data public
Add team members to private projects
There is no limit on how many members can be a part of a project, just like there is no limit on the total number of uesrs in your Datashift account.
Make your project public to everyone within Datashift
Seting a project to public will give everyone the ability to follow your project and have read-only access to your datafiles. They will not be able to edit your data in anyway but will have the ability to download a .csv copy.
To set your project to public:
- If you are creating a new project, simply select "Public to Datashift community" under the privacy section and click "Create project".
- If your project is already created, from the main menu on your left, click on the project you wish to make public.
- Below the project name and description click "Edit project".
- Select "Public to Datashift community" under the privacy section and click "Create project".
Tip: To make your public data easily findable & accessible, make sure you complete the additional information section that is available to your project after it has been created.
Metadata for public projects
To make sure every project is searchable, the following details should be added to each public project:
- Start date— The first day when the first data point was recorded for the project.
- End date— The day where the last data point was recorded for the project. Or set asongoingif the project is still collecting data.
- Field of study— Select the most appropriate field of study that fits the project.
- Country, province/state, and city— Identify the best geographic location where the data within your project comes from.
Tip: Increase the visibility of your project by adding metadata to each datafile within your project in addition to adding metadata to your project.
