Hi, I am writing a package which requires for its use access to a 80 mb
data set.

Is there a standard way to associate a package with a set of data? I
figured out a way that involves pulling the data from dat files available
online and parsing them into a more readily available mathematica form. But
I'd rather be able to have the user just have the data with the package.
What is the best way to go about this? I thought .mx files but I noticed
the docs say that they don't work across platforms.
