(1) Create a tabular dataset

Download a spreadsheet (click the Download button below to get a copy of the data above), and convert the worksheet containing the data to a CSV file.

(2) Generate a Data Package

Use the Data Package Creator to upload your CSV file (click Load at the top right), then Add Fields to show all the columns. Check the various field settings, add metadata (name, title, license, etc.) on the left hand column, and finally Validate and Download your Data Package.

Title πŸ“¦ Frictionless Data: datapackage.json

You can also Upload the example shown above into the Creator tool.

(3) Next steps

To find out how to publish the Data Package in such a way that it is accessible to a general audience, visit the Software Toolkit page of the Frictionless Data project. For example, uploading to Datahub.io allows the use of VEGA visualizations and embedded maps.
