What are the best practices for Catalog/Resource (Datasets/Apps) contribution?

Some of the best practices for contribution are as follows:

  • Data should be stored in widely used file formats that are suitable for machine processing.
  • Released dataset should clearly reflect “what is recorded about a particular subject”.
  • Timely release of datasets is one of the important factors to maximize the utility of information people can obtain.
  • Data should be provided in freely available formats which can be accessed without the need for a software license.
  • Data elements should be in de-normalized form.
