What is open data?

Public and private data can be combined in mathematical calculations.
You can upload data by using the Upload my data link in the database.
The real power of using dataZoa™ for research and analysis lies in the dZ-Dot™.
The dZ-Dot™ is a universal translator for data series, meaning that it changes all dataseries to a single format and updates them as they change.
By using the dz-Dot™ to populate your account, a one-time download puts dynamic data at your fingertips.
Every time the data source updates, so does the data within your account. Valuable time once spent keeping data current can now be spent on analysis and research tasks.
dataZoa includes many subscribing data sources.
