In a previous post, we discussed how to create a dataset from a datastore, but this is not the only way to create a dataset. This post will examine how to import a dataset from data available on the web.
The process is quite simple, consisting of only three steps:
- Pasting the URL from the provider of the data.
- The data is retrieved and displayed. Changing some of the settings, like the delimiter or if the data contains a header, is possible.
- We can also confirm the type of the fields, and it is possible to remove selected fields from the Azure Ml dataset
The diagram below shows the steps to create a dataset based on the Concrete Strength data from UCI.
