Data Ecosystem Resource Directory
About the DERD
Launched in October 2021, the goal of this Resource Directory helps data practitioners find resources, identify opportunities to collaborate and share knowledge, and improve understanding of departmental data priorities and activities. The Directory results from the Data Ecosystem project which seeks to create an interactive chart of everything data within and connected to the federal government. The GC Data Ecosystem Project is co-led by the Privy Council Office Results and Delivery Unit and the GC Data Community, hosted at the Canada School of Public Service.
The Directory is a community-run, collaborative project that relies on data practitioners' inputs and updates. Anyone can suggest a new entry or introduce a change to an existing one.
How to Use the Directory
To navigate through the collection of resources, we suggest viewers use the categories at the top of the page. Each dedicated tab has a list of resources organized alphabetically and based on subcategories. Lists are collapsible and can be hidden.
The GCpedia page allows users to navigate through categories and subcategories of 400+ hyperlinked resources accompanied by short descriptions. The GCpedia page also hosts a catalogue of data-related GC glossaries and dictionaries, as well as Top-20 universal data terms and definitions.
