📄️ Connect to the Marketplace
In order to download, query, or upload and publish your own data you need to be connected and signed in to the Data Marketplace.
📄️ Browse Data
The Browse page is where all our climate data and models live. We currently host gridded datasets repackaged in cloud-native Zarr file format, as well as data from sources like OasisHub and NASA.
📄️ Add Money to Your Account
In order to transact throughout the marketplace, you will need to add money to your wallet to cover the costs of purchasing data, as well as network fees (also known as “gas”). When the dClimate Data Marketplace is deployed to Polygon Mainnet, it will support USD coin / USDC for purchasing datasets. USDC is one of the most popular and widely integrated stablecoins, and is heavily regulated by the US Government.
📄️ Download Data
We’re excited you’ve found climate data you would like to download, let’s help you get started. First you need to determine if you’d like to download a single dataset or if you would like to subscribe to some data instead. The right side of any given data’s detail screen will tell you if it requires a subscription or not.
📄️ Publish Data
Publishing your own data is incredibly exciting and we’re here to walk you through the process. First you need to determine if you’d like to publish a single file of data (free or monetized at a one time fee for purchasers) or if you prefer to publish a subscription (in which purchasers would subscribe to recurring payments which you can customize).
📄️ Understand My Wallet
You see that oval with a bunch of letters and numbers in it next to the user icon at the top right of the screen? That’s your “web3 wallet address” and it is how we associate everything happening on your account with you.
📄️ Understand and Create Collections
A collection is the basis for a subscription. When you subscribe to a subscription you are actually subscribing to the collection it belongs to. Any other subscription connected to this subscription you are also subscribed to. Check the collection page to see all other subscriptions you can access.
📄️ Query Data Without Large File Downloads
ZARR based datasets help us improve your ability to request only the data you need. Datasets with the file type called ‘ZARR’ support this feature. If you only need a couple megabytes worth of data from one specific area for a specific time period, you can request just that instead of downloading gigabytes worth of data to access only that small portion of data.
📄️ Make an API Request (via Subscriptions)
Making an API request is relatively easy. Once you have purchased a subscription you will be able to make requests on the datasets that allow your subscription.
📄️ Understand and Create Organizations
An organization allows data publishers to link all of their different data together under one umbrella and help with data discoverability.
📄️ Understand Curators
A curator is essentially the organization you wish to belong to.
📄️ Understand Datasets NFTs
Dataset ownership is controlled by an NFT when you first publish the dataset. This is helpful because it allows you to transfer ownership to other accounts. This also opens the doors to other opportunities such as selling this data to someone else. This ownership entitles the owner to receive all the future profits of the dataset or past profits not yet claimed by the owner.
