Data Design

  • Dd Data Design

Data design is the process of creating and managing a web schema, or structure, for a website’s content and databases. It involves identifying the content types and fields, and then creating a taxonomy, or hierarchy, to organize this content in a logical way. This ensures that the data is stored in a consistent and organized manner and can be easily accessed. 

Data design is a vital part of the web development process, as it helps users and search engines alike to find and understand the content on a website. Data design can also involve the use of databases, which allow complex queries to be performed on the data. By properly designing the databases, developers can ensure that the data is stored efficiently and retrieved quickly. Ultimately, data design is an essential tool for creating effective and efficient websites and web applications.

The Drupal Spec Tool (in Google Sheets) is just one of many ways to document or visualize a data design.
