Global.health is a collaborative effort by technologists and researchers from leading international institutions to build a trusted, detailed, and accurate resource of real-time infectious disease data.
By creating a centralized open resource of verified case-level data from around the world, our aim is to accelerate the work of researchers, public health officials, and the global community to better prepare for, respond to, and reduce the burden of disease outbreaks. We hope that this work will help cultivate a global community invested in improving health outcomes for all through open and secure data sharing.
This repository contains dated records of curated Monkeypox cases from the 2022 outbreak (April - ), a data dictionary, and a script used to pull contents from a spreadsheet into JSON and CSV files.
The script is intended for use by the curation team and supporting engineers. It requires access to the relevant Google Sheet, and a Google Cloud service account.
The data dictionary is located in the root directory of this project. It contains information about columns/fields in the data sets.
The archives folder contains dated JSON and CSV files. They are currently uploaded manually; regularly and automatically updated data sets live in an (currently private) S3 bucket.
The data is updated six times per day.

Open Infrastructure Map is a view of the world's infrastructure mapped in the OpenStreetMap database. This data isn't exposed on the default OSM map, so I built Open Infrastructure Map to visualise it. If you want to edit the data and you're new to OpenStreetMap, check out learnOSM.
If you already have some OSM experience and want to start tagging infrastructure things, take a look at the tagging guidelines for power and telecoms.
The Commercial Military Actor Database (CMAD) is able to support research on civil war and commercial military actors. First, the CMAD covers all civil wars from 1980 to 2016 across all of the world’s regions except Europe, which enables the investigation of long-term regional and global trends. Second, the CMAD encompasses the corporate market segment and mercenary outfits, which facilitates the analysis of how those actors have impacted conflicts differently. Third, containing detailed information about the relationships behind exchanges, the CMAD allows users to disaggregate market exchanges.

Risk Factor™ is a free online tool created by the nonprofit First Street Foundation® that makes it easy for Americans to find their property’s risk from environmental threats such as flooding and wildfires and understand how risks are changing because of a changing environment.
First Street Foundation’s mission is to address the asymmetry in access to high-quality climate change data by quantifying and communicating America’s environmental risks so that everyone can make informed decisions for the future. By making flood and fire risk data accessible and easy to understand, individuals and communities can prepare for and mitigate risks before they become a reality.
Look up your zipcode to get an assessment of environmental disaster risk in your area.

A Creative Commons handbook that teaches the legal, social, and technical aspects of open data. Teaches not only what you can do with an open data set, but how to go about getting datasets opened to analysis. If you're looking for a hands-on nitty-gritty book about mining open data, however, this isn't it.
CKAN is open source data management portal software for extremely large data sets, on the scale of entire governments. Used to publish, curate, share, search, and find datasets of just about any kind. Does visualization and metrics. Source code on Github (https://github.com/ckan/ckan). Written in Python, uses Postgres as its back end. Can interface with Apache Solr for search and indexing.
