Importing Data

Lesson Overview:

  • In this lesson, we review how to upload data into your job, the supported file formats, and a general guide to the data page.
  • We provided sample source data that you can download and upload into the platform.
  • The column headers we’ll be using are tweet_id and tweet_content
    1. The tweet_url allows us to provide a link to the original tweet so contributors can view corresponding context.
    2. The tweet_content allows us to display the body of the tweet in our job’s interface.

Steps to Complete:

  1. Download sample source data here
  2. Upload source data into your job

Further Reading:

  • Supported File Formats
    • It is best to use a UTF-8 encoded .CSV file when uploading data to Figure Eight. .TSV, .XLSX, and .ODS file formats are also acceptable and require UTF-8 encoding. All data files should have a unique column header for each column.
