Storing related files

The Problem

You have uploaded a dataset, but also have a Freedom of Information Act request or other documentation that you want to store with it.

Related files frequently serve as documentation of how a dataset should be interpreted or are vital context to its acquisition. It is essential that this data be readily available to other journalists who wish to report on the data.

The Solution

Use PANDA's Related Files feature to store other files right alongside the data.

You will find the Related Files section on the right-hand side of any dataset page, just below Related Links:

Related Files

The three icons to the right of each file allow you to see metadata about the file, change its name and delete it, respectively.

Note: As a best practice, you should also upload original data files as related files whenever you manipulate the data prior to import into PANDA.
