"How to use" seems to have two different meanings.
If I hadn't read the full text, I would have interpreted this question as something along the lines of "I'm trying to use this data, but having problems with it".
Your question seems to be "What possible uses are there for this data?".
The first question (difficulty in using data), I'd be all for ... I'm torn on your example, though, and would have to take them on a case-by-case basis. There's actually a policy on cooking.SE on "how to use" questions that takes into consideration obscurity -- so asking about "how can I use flour" will get closed, while less well known ingredients might not.
