Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have a database, what else do I need to start using RDS?
    Nothing! RDS can expose data immediately and documentation can be added later or built up over time.
  • Do I need metadata to publish my data in RDS?
    The data can be queried over the API immediately after the data is registered in RDS. However, metadata is strongly encouraged to provide end users with in depth information about the data and how to use it. Catalogs and data products can be restricted to administrators if desired to provide an opportunity to fill out the metadata before publishing.
  • All my data are in files and I am not familiar with SQL databases, can I still use RDS?
    Yes! MTNA has a rich library of data readers that can read simple formats like CSV and Excel, as well as proprietary statistical formats like SAS, SPSS, and Stata. These files can be used to create a database table through the application, providing a way to get started even if you are not familiar with managing a database.
