When to create a dataset with multiple resources versus multiple datasets?

Always create one dataset per report or project with supporting documents such as spreadsheets, maps, appendices, and photos included as separate resources associated with the dataset. If there is a large number of files use zip folders to group related files.

The only exception to having one dataset per report or project is where one dataset may be used to host annual project/program reports which would have the same title and scope from year to year.

For example,

In all other cases, create a separate dataset for each file or weblink. Where closely related datasets exist, you may choose to add them to a collection or create hyperlinks in the dataset descriptions to link datasets by their Skeena Salmon Data Centre URLs.

To add a hyperlink to a dataset description, use the markup language following the syntax below:

[TEXT TO SHOW](webpage URL)
