Getting Public Data Sets for Data Science Projects

All of us are interested in doing brilliant things with data sets. Most people use Twitter data streams for their projects. But there a lot of free data sets in the Internet. Today, I'm going to list down few of them. Almost all of these links, I found from a Lynda.com course called Up and Running with Public Data Sets. If you want more details, please watch the complete course on Lynda.com.


Moreover, Quandl offers R package which you can download data into your R projects very easily. I'm hoping to write a blog post on getting Quandl data with R. This site mainly includes economic data sets.


I'm from Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan researchers might need Sri Lankan data sets as well. Below links will help you to find Sri Lankan data sets.


Hope you enjoy playing with those data sets!
