Data Farm Quick-Start: Query data
Once you have data access to a dataset, you can further explore the dataset by adding it to a project. The Redivis project interfaceallows you to develop scalable, reproducible, and self-documenting data pipelines as you filter, transform, and merge data from across Redivis.
➊To begin, select the Add to project button. From the drop-down, you can add the dataset to an existing project, or create a new project.
➋ This will bring the dataset into the Redivis project interface. Select the dataset icon to view the tables in the dataset. You can select a table to view its variables and summary statistics. In this case, we will select the articles_1977 table.
➌ To manipulate the data, click the Transformnode underneath the table icon. This will open a panel on the right side of the page where you can 1) apply certain transformations, and 2) select variables to include in the output.
➍ In this example, I want to filter the data to only include articles from the Business section. For my future reference, I rename the transform "Filter by Business section" and add a Filter step.
➎ I specify the rules for my Filter step (section LIKE 'business'), and select four variables for inclusion in my output: section, title, authors and paragraphs. Then I click Run.
➏ My output appears as a new table in the visual query editor. I can also see more information about my output on the right side of the page.
