Users can search available datasets through the Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network (CKAN). CKAN is a web-based open source management system and powerful data catalog.

Users can search a derived data product. Faceted search/navigation tool is for accessing information organized according to category information

This will provide how to access our data and services with Jupyter Notebook as a case study of an interactive visualization with our datasets.

"Knowledge is
'synthesis of multiple sources of information over time', 'organization and processing to convey understanding, experience [and] accumulated learning',
'a mix of contextual information, values, experience and rules' "

Rowley, J., and R. Hartley (2006) Organizing Knowledge: An Introduction to Managing Access to Information

"Knowledge is
'study and experience', 'a mix of contextual information, expert opinion, skills and experience', 'information combined with understanding and capability', 'perception, skills, training, common sense and experience' "

Rowley, J., and R. Hartley (2006) Organizing Knowledge: An Introduction to Managing Access to Information

"Knowledge is a fluid mix of framed experience, values, contextual information, expert insight and grounded intuition that provides an environment and framework for evaluating and incorporating new experiences and information. It originates and is applied in the minds of knowers."
