Overall Satisfaction with Dryad

Dryad really helped me to find the datasets I was looking for in some of my data science projects. In some areas, there was a need for more data, and data collection was either too costly or time-consuming. It was also important to know the data lineage which in this case the datasets easily can give us the source metadata.
  • Data curation
  • Easy to use website
  • Data in any format
  • More incentives for people to contribute data
  • More promotion of the platform so people know about it
  • Expand data categories
  • Good customer service
  • Easy to use
  • Good array of subject areas
  • 35% time saved when it comes to cleaning
  • Obviate the need for purchasing data
  • Do not need to hire people to collect data
The website isn't as clean as that for Dryad and there seems to be less support for the end-user. However, it appears that they also have a large number of data repositories and have backing from many well-known universities. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and likability.
