The massive size of GDELT’s data archives can make it difficult to extract just the subset of data you need for a given visualization or analysis. For example, trying to map all attacks against a certain ethnic group in Nigeria over the last 35 years requires examining over a quarter-billion records, each of which records 58 fields of data. This quickly overwhelms all but the most sophisticated of data analysis tools. To help you with this, the GDELT Analysis Service now offers to data exporting tools.
EVENT Record Exporter
The EVENT Record Exporter allows you to rapidly export blocks of records from the GDELT Event Database, making quick work of compiling small extracts of records.
GKG Record Exporter
Similarly, the GKG Record Exporter allows you to rapidly export blocks of Global Knowledge Graph records, making it easy to examine the records used for a given visualization or analysis.
