Data Sets

From the web
UCI Machine Learning Repository Contains several small data sets with a variety of data characteristics, including some high dimensional data sets.

Data on the Net (University of California-San Diego, USA) A searchable repository of annotated links to downloadable data, data archive home pages, data catalogues, and distributors and vendors of data. Contains links to sites with census data, geographic data, social science data, etc.

KDD Nuggets list of datasets

UCI Knowledge Discovery in Databases Archive This is an online repository of relatively large data sets which encompasses a wide variety of data types, analysis tasks, and application areas. The primary role of this repository is to enable researchers in knowledge discovery and data mining to scale existing and future data analysis algorithms to very large and complex data sets.
