Fourteen different tools are available for geographic, temporal, network, and contextual visualizations of both the Event Database and Global Knowledge Graph.No technical expertise is required - you just select the visualization you want, enter your query, and a few minutes later it is delivered right to your email inbox!A common thread we've heard from all of you is the need for a central set of tools that make it easier to work with GDELT and that can translate its rich multidimensional knowledgebase into file formats and visualizations that analysts and scholars can better make sense of and that are compatible with the toolkits and software you use each day.To this end, each of the tools offers the ability to output in a wide array of relevant file formats, from CSV to Google Earth to Gephi, allowing you for example to construct a network of influencers around an industry and output it as a Gephi file for further analysis.GDELT Analysis Service Free cloud-based service that offers a variety of tools and services to allow you to visualize, explore, and export GDELT - a great way to get started using GDELT for the first time.The GDELT Analysis Service is a free cloud-based service that offers a variety of tools and services to allow you to visualize, explore, and export both the GDELT Event Database and the GDELT Global Knowledge Graph.
NOTE: The Analysis Service currently searches only GDELT 1.0, an upgrade is planned for later this year to integrate all of the GDELT 2.0 datasets.
When you find something of interest that you want to explore, visualize, or analyze in more detail, the Analysis Service has a wide range of export options, from speciality file formats to raw export of the underlying CSV records.
If you are trying to locate all attacks on civilians in a certain country over a four-month period, use the Time Mapper tool to determine if there are enough matching events or if you need to adjust your query further, and then use the Exporter tool to download a CSV file containing just the matching records.
CSV.zip" (ie the morning of May 24, 2013 a new file called "20130523.export. UNIX or Linux users can easily set up a cronjob or other automatic scheduling processes to automatically download the latest daily update each morning and process it for watchboarding, forecasting, early warning, alert services, and other applications.
There is also a special GDELT 1.0 "reduced" event dataset (1.1GB) that uses the "one a day" country-level filtering commonly used in older academic event databases.
This enables you to try out "what if" hypotheses on global-scale trends in near-real time.
