The Google Public Data Explorer allows users to upload their own datasets for visualization and exploration.
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. You don’t have to be a data expert to navigate between different views, make your own comparisons, and share your findings.
The Google Public Data tool in Labs uses some of the Trendalyzer technology also used in the Motion Chart gadget available in the Google Visualization API and Google Docs.
Students, journalists, policy makers and everyone else can play with the tool to create visualizations of public data, link to them, or embed them in their own webpages. Embedded charts and links can update automatically so you’re always sharing the latest available data.
To get started:
- Describe your dataset using the Dataset Publishing Language (DSPL), an open, XML-based metadata format optimized for data visualization.
- Bundle your data and metadata into a single Zip file, and upload it using the button below.
- Preview, share, and publish your dataset for others to see and use.
