Google launched public Data Explorer in 2008. It is a tool that enables the user to explore and examine large data sets graphically. The kind of data accessed from this page includes public data and forecast ranging from international organizations such as the World Bank, OECD, Eurostat to academic institutions like the University of Denver. If it were not for this tool such information from these establishments would be unavailable to the public.

Public Data Explorer does not only give access to these kinds of data, but it also allows their visualizing in the form of graphs, cross sectional plots and on maps. Since its launch in 2008, it was in 2011 when the software was made available for everyone.

People can now upload, share and visualize data freely. This is possible through Dataset Publishing Language (DSPL), a data format which allows the dataset to be visualized, ingrained in external websites and shared. Public Data Explorer has the Google Analytics Suite which enables the import of individual or public data sets, and the overlay of non-coding of data visualization tool.

To upload content on this application, click the link on left-hand side of the software “My Datasets.” The user will then be asked to describe his/her data in the DSPL (Dataset Publishing Language) format. From there, the next step is to bundle this data set into a zip file and press the upload button as shown on the screen. Before publishing anything, the user can preview and edit the data set, then post and share after making corrections.The tool has a DSPL forum where the user can post questions and check out for feedbacks.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    The Google Public Data Explorer makes large datasets easy to explore, visualize and communicate. As the charts and maps animate over time, the changes in the world become easier to understand. Although primarily intended to enable non-specialists to interrogate public datasets, users can also upload their own data after describing them in Dataset Publishing Language (DSPL).
