What are the benefits of being a registered user?

Anyone can view and download data on HDX, however registered users have access to more features. After signing up you can:

  1. Contact data contributors to ask for more information about their data.
  2. Request access to the underlying data for metadata only entries (our HDX Connect feature).
  3. Join organisations to share data or to access private data, depending on your role within the organisation, e.g. an admin, editor, or member of the organisation (see more below).
  4. Request to create a new organisation and if approved, share data publicly or privately.
  5. Add data visualizations as showcase items alongside your organisations datasets.
  6. Follow the latest changes to data.
