Data Planet Data Hosting Services


Data Planet facilitates storage, accessibility, usability, maintenance and archiving of statistical data, sourced from both third parties and direct from researchers, via our Data Hosting Services. Our Data Hosting Services seamlessly and securely integrate your data in the Data Planet platform, allowing users to compare and correlate your data against the entire Data Planet repository of statistical datasets in a single, easy-to-use interface. Our Data Hosting Services support researcher data management plans required by funding agencies.


  • For data licensed from a third-party data publisher, we will work with the publisher to 1) properly load the data into the Data Planet repository, 2) update and maintain the data, and 3) report usage of the data.
  • For researcher-provided data, the Data Planet team will work with your staff to load the data into the Data Planet platform, create descriptive metadata, and control access.
