For our Frictionless Data project, we were curious to learn about some of the common issues users face when working with data. To that end, we started a Case Study series to highlight projects and organizations working with the Frictionless Data specifications and tooling in interesting and innovative ways.
Through several interviews over the past several months, we now have three case studies published on a range of topics: data science in the browser, the provision of clean power system data for energy researchers, and re-usable components for cloud-based data-intensive workflows.
We interviewed Waylon Finn of Dataship to learn more about how he uses the Data Package specifications. Dataship is a way to share data and analysis, from simple charts to complex machine learning, with anyone in the world easily and for free. The Data Package acts as the base format for Dataship notebooks.
Open Power System Data
We spoke to Lion Hirth and Ingmar Schlecht about Open Power System Data, a free-of-charge and open platform providing clean, high quality data needed for power system analysis and modeling. The project is aimed at resolving some of the most common, persistent issues energy researchers face when working with data.
