GDELT Reaches 300 Million Events

This past Monday, GDELT reached an incredible milestone: the GDELT Event dataset surpassed 300 million events mentioned 2.5 billion times covering the entire planet back to January 1, 1979 and now updated every 15 minutes.  This is a truly amazing milestone and firmly cements GDELT as truly the largest event dataset ever created.

With the release of GDELT 2.0 and its realtime translation of all global news it monitors in 65 languages, GDELT is growing at an incredible rate: more than 300,000 events per day and the GKG is growing by nearly 700,000 articles a day deemed relevant to one or more of its thematic categories.

We can't wait to see what this vast realtime catalog of human society enables!
