Description

• 

The DataSets package contains functions for retrieving and working with data sets, as well as GUI elements for the same purposes. This package is able to access time series data from the data aggregator Quandl, as well as locally installed geographical data from GeoNames.

• 

It is recommended that you start with the search command or use the visual search form.

• 

Each command in the DataSets package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the calling sequence.

  

As the underlying implementation of the DataSets package is a module, it is also possible to use the form DataSets:-command to access a command from the package. For more information, see Module Members.
