Marketplace

You can find all data offers of the Data Intelligence Hub in the MARKETPLACE.

In the overview you will find

  • a pre-selection of trending data offers
  • topic-based categories with the number of offers they contain

The most important information is contained in the brief summary of the offers (tiles):

  • Title
  • Provider
  • Date of update
  • Available formats (csv, geoJSON, JSON, xml, zip, pdf …)
  • Usage fee
  • Availability

What you can see as a user in the MARKETPLACE of the Data Intelligence Hub differs according to the user group:

  • When logged-in as a team member of an organization, you can see all MARKETPLACE offers and order them, depending on your user rights.
  • With a Personal account, regardless of whether you belong to the team of a registered organization or have only registered as an individual user, you will see open data offers that are free of charge. In future you will also see commercial data offers. However, you can only order the former.
  • As a user who is not logged in to the Data Intelligence Hub, you will only see open data offers that are free of charge, which you can order after registering.
  • On external versions of the Data Intelligence Hub, such as communal pages, you can download open data offers without registering.

The use of the MARKETPLACE is described below as you would experience it when logged in as a member of an organization – supplemented with notes for personal use.

Searching for data offers

You can find matching offers using a keyword search.

    • fewer search terms

  • Formats, period, license types, topics, more filters

Set one or more checkmarks in the filter selection menus. Next to each option, the number of corresponding available offers is displayed.

With this filter, you can limit the search results according to time:
As soon as you click on one of the date fields, two calendar views (current month) will open. Define the desired period by

  • using the arrow buttons to choose the month in the current year and selecting your start and end date in these months.
  • If your desired period is more than a year, click on the month in the first calendar view – you will see a list with years. Select a year, then a new list will open showing the months in this year.
  • The first day of the selected month is your starting point. Proceed as before to select the end point in the second calendar. The last day of the month selected there is your end point. By clicking on a date in the month views, you can then define a specific start and end date.

More filters

Depending on the size of your screen, one or more filters can be seen. The remaining filters can always be found in “Other filters”. To further refine very large numbers of results, click on “More filters” at the right-hand end of the bar.

This will open an overlay with additional filters, with which you can further refine very large numbers of results. You can open the input option for the respective filter by setting the slider to “ON”.
