Show how your datasets are used

Showcases are used to describe something (such as a web page or mobile app) that has been built based on one or more datasets in your catalog. Possible uses of showcases are to gather information during or after hackathons, or just to document the results of an organization's activities around open data. The Showcase feature showcases concrete applications or initiatives (Showcases) of how your datasets have been used. You can use Showcases to publish and point to actual use cases of your datasets.


When you are in the overview view of a catalog, you can click on Showcase.
