Avgidea, Inc., creator of end-to-end data management platform, announces launch of Avgidea Data Platform (ADP) to improve open data usability with Google Sheets, G Suite.
Open data is provided in all markets worldwide and users need to search what they need through the internet every time. If data analysts or scientists are able to find appropriate data, they download them in local environments, typically as text or CSV files, then use various tools to modify and aggregate before analyzing them. It’s time-consuming and often blurs what they are trying to achieve in the first place.
Avgidea Data Search and Avgidea Query Editor prevent users switching multiple tools back and forth, and minimize tasks related to open data by implementing data search and query features as an add-on of Google Sheets, a very popular table calculation service.
Avgidea Data Search (ADS)
From Avgidea Data Search, users may search open data which is scattered on the internet and import it to Google Sheets directly with a single click.
ADS supports part of ckan and Dataverse API and users can easily import CSV data from various sites on the internet. ADS maintains the latest endpoints of ckan and Dataverse available globally, therefore they can simply select an instance from the list and immediately start searching data from the instance.
Avgidea Query Editor (AQE)
Avgidea Query Editor can let users submit a query directly to instances compliant to SPARQL specification and import query results into Google Sheets.
There exists several SPARQL compliant data platforms such as Amazon Neptune or Virtuoso Universal Server. As long as endpoints are available on the internet, users may import query results into Google Sheets via AQE.
Avgidea Data Search and Avgidea Query Editor are offered as an add-on of Google Sheets, therefore users may install from G Suite Marketplace using an existing Google account (G Suite or Gmail) and immediately start using both components under free plan.
If users are willing to use the products without any restriction, they may purchase subscription plan from Avgidea's website. Users are eligible to receive updates of new features and upgrades.
Program for healthcare agencies / research institutions
For healthcare agencies or research institutions which are willing to access open data for COVID-19 related activities, Avgidea offers a free subscription license of ADS and AQE for 1 year. Please contact Avgidea directly if those institutions are willing to use products for such purposes.
Also, if any of healthcare agencies or research institutions already make research data available public through ckan or Dataverse instances, Avgidea can register them as endpoints in ADS.
