Goals, Tips, and Strategies

We met our goal for December 2010 -- 100 datasets -- and we surpassed it!. Let's continue to add datasets available in the lists below, including the "General Resources" list. We still want to identify and keep track of NREL datasets, so if you know of any, please add them to the list.

  • Suggested Process
  1. When you decide to "take on" a dataset in the list, please update the status to "in progress" plus your initials
  2. Decide whether you can manually add the dataset(s) or if it is more appropriate for a developer (and make a note of it in the "Status" column):
    1. Generally, you can manually enter the dataset(s) if there are 5 or less datasets for the particular subject, and you're able to download those datasets.
    2. A developer would be better for resources that ave numerous datasets all associated with a single topic (e.g., monthly data for several years, or data for all major cities in a particular country), because hopefully they can determine a way to automate the upload of the many files.
  3. Be sure to check the license and/or terms and conditions; in a few cases there may be explicit restrictions prohibiting us from adding the data to our site (e.g. IEA). In such cases, please make a note of that in the "notes" section.
  4. Think about whether the dataset is a good candidate for linking with other things in the wiki, or could produce an interesting visual; if so, add "wiki opportunity:plus some details" in the "notes" section.
  5. As you read through the metadata for uploading to OpenEI, think about how you rate the dataset.
  6. Once the dataset is live on OpenEI:
    1. Update the status below to the actual link to the dataset
    2. Rate the dataset
