Understand your data’s journey

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

Observe dependencies between fields

Get an instant understanding of the dependencies between your portal’s data assets and uncover any errors with our field-level view. This granular analysis precisely reveals the relationships between the portal’s data assets and also provides details on any errors encountered, such as deletions or datasets removed from view. This makes it easy to spot and fix potential issues, thus improving the overall quality of the portal.

Automatically map your data’s lifecycle

Data origin and status (Valid, invalid data)

Relationship between datasets (Federation, join)

Reuse of data (Pages, datasets, maps, geographic processors)

Data modification and processing

Relationships between data assets and at field level (use, federation, join)

Errors between data assets and at field level (unpublishing, deletion)

The lineage functionality is a useful step forward for managing our data portal. It allows us to track performance more easily thanks to better analysis of the links which exist between different datasets, or between datasets and pages. Our portal is growing and is administered by multiple people. This functionality is therefore essential for us to master the structure of the links between the different elements of our portal.

Manage the use of your data

data lineage

Opendatasoft’s unique data lineage functionality provides an interactive dashboard that delivers a complete view of data usage within the back office of your data portal. The dashboard automatically aggregates key information to instantly analyze and manage the dynamics of your portal.

Track key performance indicators

Understand the needs of data consumers

Measure the number of reuses and identify the data formats your audiences prefer.

Maintain your data

Track the status of relationships and identify both high-value datasets and those requiring modification or deletion.

Identify uses

Easily discover the most or least used datasets and adapt your strategy.

Interact in the Opendatasoft ecosystem

Identify synergies with the rest of the Opendatasoft community.

The data lineage feature significantly improves the tracking and management of our internal data portal. Intuitive and easy to use, it allows us to quickly identify changes in datasets and their repercussions, thus saving us precious time. We are very satisfied with this new feature in the platform and are already looking forward to its future developments!

Accelerate data democratization

Applying traceability to your data usage provides you with deep, unique information and acts as a valuable decision-making tool. It allows you to better manage your projects to achieve your data sharing goals.

Demonstrate the value of your data portal

Tracking data usage and data portal performance indicators within your organization or in open data ecosystems helps you demonstrate the impact and ROI of your data sharing programs and experiences.

Improve the maintenance of your data portal

Automated data flow documentation reduces workloads and increases data project productivity through real-time mapping of data transformations from source to reuse.

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.
