The WISERD DataPortal is an online Geographic Information System (GIS) designed to enhance a researcher's ability to discover socio-economic research data relating to Wales, with the aim of encouraging collaborative research and re-use of existing data. The WISERD data portal provides map-based and text-based search tools for accessing a rich meta-database of government surveys (e.g. Living in Wales, Welsh Health Survey) and primary qualitative WISERD research (e.g. interview transcripts) and is expanding constantly.
Details of publications may be found here.
