Adding data

Experience the flexibility of importing and integrating data to enhance your data visualization projects. In Cloudera Data Visualization, you have the capability to add data from flat files. The imported data is processed as a new table and it is integrated into an existing data repository. Subsequently, you can use this data as a supplementary information source for your existing datasets by establishing new table joins. You can also create new datasets that reference the imported data as their primary tables.

Data Visualization supports two primary forms of data sources: CSV and URL.

You can use the Import Data functionality to enhance your existing datasets, incorporating this data by creating joins within the data model. The choice of creating a new dataset based on the imported data depends on your specific business requirements.

For importing data stored in Excel format, see Preparing Excel files for data import.
