Import files and data sources to the Platform
There are several ways to import datasets into your project:
You can upload existing files with the data you want to use to the platform in several ways:
Upload files directly from your local computer.
Click Choose files and select your file or just drag and drop them in the dotted area.
This should be limited to files of 5 GB or smaller, to limit the risk of connection issues during upload.
Import data from a URL.
Click URL import, if your files are hosted online.
This is recommended for large files, as it usually provides a better and faster connection.
Data API You can also use the Data API to let a script (or program) upload the files you want into a new dataset.
File formats supported
Uploading several files
You can upload several files into the same dataset. Uploading several files can be useful if your training examples have several features which are saved in different files.
If you want to upload multiple files, keep in mind that:
All files must be uploaded at the time when the dataset is created.
The first file you upload determine the number of examples (rows).
You cannot add more examples by adding more files.
All files must contain the same number of examples.
The examples must be in the same order in all files.
Data library: ready-made datasets
The Data library contains datasets that are ready to be added to your project.
In the Datasets overview page, click the Data library button to open the Data library window to:
The datasets in the data library may come from third party sources and are provided for convenience. Read the dataset licenses to know the particular terms of each dataset.
Data warehouse: import datasets from Azure Synapse and BigQuery
If you have data stored in Azure Synapse or BigQuery online storage, you can import it to the Platform and start training models on it.
This is done easily in three steps: connect to your data warehouse, select the dataset you want to import, preview the content to make sure it’s correct, and that’s it.
The exact steps depend on your service provider. Currently we support:
