Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
Agency data is used by individuals and organizations to review and analyze the categories and amounts of awards granted in the areas of science and engineering. While we can’t identify with certainty the top five external users of NSF data, we are providing information on several known organizations/categories of users.
Value or impact of data
See below Primary data discovery channels
Users are learning about agency datasets and resources through Data.gov, links from NSF’s web sites (including an extensive list of datasets on NSF’s Open Government web page), agency social media sites, commercial app stores, and NSF-sponsored events including the National Day of Civic Hacking. In addition, NSF is sponsoring a weekly “hackers” group to explore how NSF datasets might be used. Finally, an iPhone/iPad/Android app has been developed to enable users to more readily access and explore the Science & Engineering Indicators provided by NSF and the National Science Board.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
Users had been very interested in NSF making agency award data available in a more open format (rather than providing a structured award search). With our recent release of the agency Award Search web API, we hope to have addressed many concerns about the usability of the award search data. We are actively exploring developing additional APIs to make access to our data easier.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
Feedback from users of NSF data demonstrates that they are interested in the results of NSF-funded research and awards. In an effort parallel to our Open Data initiative, NSF is working to maximize the availability of results from agency-funded research, pursuant to the requirements outlined in Director John Holdren’s February 22, 2013 memorandum, “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research.”
