What influenced your decision to deposit your data in the Illinois Data Bank?
Open-access datasets are important resources in my field. They allow researchers to test new algorithms on real-world data that would otherwise be difficult and time-consuming to collect. A common data set can also provide a fair basis for comparison between different algorithms. Unfortunately, these datasets are often difficult to access and may disappear entirely if their creators fail to maintain them. By publishing my dataset in the Illinois Data Bank, I can ensure that it remains accessible to the research community for many years.
