Google dataset search

Recently Google launced a new service aiming to index local, public and national data repositories: Google Dataset Search.

Dataset Search lets you find datasets wherever they’re hosted, whether it’s a publisher's site, a digital library, or an author's personal web page.

Google also developed guidelines for dataset providers to describe their data in a way that search engines can better understand the content of their pages.

The approach is based on an open standard for describing this information ( and anybody who publishes data can describe their dataset this way.

The engine also links, where possible, the dataset to Google Scholar articles using them.
