I am investigating common characteristics of chosen databases. By databases I understand collections of data, possibly with relations between them.
I want to collect metadata for all databases that I could possibly find that meet some criteria. That accounts for two steps:
- Getting a set of databases available publicly
- Getting metadata that describe these databases e.g.
- number of datasets/tables/collections
- size of these datasets (filesystem, number of records)
Is it possible to find such data? I could possibly write a script that fetches that information if it is hard to access manually but is it actually possible to find?
