Understanding DataHerb

What is DataHerb

DataHerb is an open data initiative to make the access of open datasets easier.

  • A DataHerb or Herb is a dataset. A dataset comes with the data files, and the metadata of the data files.
  • A DataHerb Leaf or Leaf is a data file in the DataHerb.
  • A Flora is the combination of all the DataHerbs.

In many data projects, finding the right datasets to enhance your data is one of the most time consuming part. DataHerb adds flavor to your data project.

What is DataHerb Flora

We desigined the following workflow to share and index datasets.
