Open Data

Open Data sources allow you to bring your own data into the DataSift streaming platform, and to define your own mapping, validation and transformation.
Data can be then enriched with the available enrichment services, filtered with custom CSDL filters, and delivered to any of the supported data destinations.
Data that is sent to the platform is kept private to the account uploading it.
The platform allows you to map your data into our standard schema using a set of pre-defined data types or Categories. You can also map your data into our custom namespace. This enables you to define the underlying schema, and is useful if some of your data doesn't require enrichments or filtering, and lets you control the output format of your data.
For information on how the Categories used by this mapping process work, please see Categories.
