Analyze and accelerate your data use

Accelerate your impact by analyzing data usage through our data lineage feature. The in-depth knowledge of data flows that data lineage provides is key to successfully developing and deploying your data projects.

Understand the journey of your data

Opendatasoft’s data lineage functionality provides detailed mapping of the path your data takes within your data portal’s back office. It models the dataset journey from its creation to final destination, providing information on its origin and its different reuses internally on your data portal and externally outside your organization.

Automatically track your data’s lifecycle

Data origin and status (valid, invalid).

Relationship between datasets (federation, join).

Reuse of data (pages, datasets, maps, geographic processors, etc.).

Data modification and processing.

Visualize the mesh or network generated by the use of your data


On the business side, the data lineage feature provides key information to demonstrate the value of open data and data sharing by easily showcasing how data has been reused. On the technical side, it is a great addition to enable more robust data governance processes.

Enforce your data sharing strategy

Data lineage allows you to build your open data roadmap with confidence, based on insights around how your data is being used. It also enables you to take advantage of opportunities within the Opendatasoft ecosystem through our dynamic community.

From a data publisher perspective, one of the problems experienced with open data is understanding what data users are doing with the data. Whilst Opendatasoft facilitates the submission of reuses already, this new data lineage feature provides additional insight into the maps and charts that users have built whilst maintaining user anonymity, that we would not have known about. This adds to the value of open data.
