Google on Thursday launched a new search engine for the scientific community that will help them make sense of millions of datasets present online.
The service, called Dataset Search, will help scientists, data journalists and geeks find the data required for their work and their stories — or simply to satisfy their intellectual curiosity.
The new search engine will work like Google Scholar, the company’s popular search engine for academic studies and reports.
To create Dataset search, Google developed guidelines for dataset providers to describe their data in a way that the company (and other search engines) can better understand the content of their pages.
Dataset Search works in multiple languages with support for additional languages coming soon, said Google.
