Advertise your data using datacasting tools

Data Life Cycle stage(s): Discover

To make your data available using standard and open software tools you should:

  • Use standard language and terms to clearly communicate to others that your data are available for reuse and that you expect ethical and appropriate use of your data

  • Use an open source datacasting (RSS or other type) service that enables you to advertise your data and the options for others to obtain access to it (RSS, GeoRSS, DatacastingRSS)
