The Data Viewer provides two ways to download data from Enigma Public:
- The Export
button lets you download the current data snapshot in CSV format.
- The API
button lets you download information from the current data snapshot in JSON format.
button lets you download the current dataset in CSV (comma-separated value) format. If you applied any filters, you can choose to download the full dataset or the current filtered view.
Having the data available in CSV format is valuable if you wish to perform any kind of data analysis beyond what’s available through the Enigma Public web application. It also makes it possible to execute queries across multiple datasets to discover connections or patterns that are otherwise hidden. For examples of ways you might explore data exported from Enigma Public, see Exploring further.
Non-commercial users can export up to 80 datasets per month free of charge. For commercial applications, see https://www.enigma.com/data or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our sales team will help you find the right solution for your needs.
Using the API
- When the snapshot was created (in other words, when the most recent data was imported into Enigma Public)
- The dataset name, description, and ID, as well as when the dataset was created and when it was last modified (this includes updates to the metadata)
- The field names, descriptions (if available), and types (integer, string, etc.)
- The snapshot ID and the number of rows
The JSON also includes the first 200 data records. You can increase the number of rows returned (maximum 10,000) by modifying the
row_limit parameter (see below).
Clicking the API
button sends an HTTP GET request to the Enigma Public API’s /snapshots endpoint. You’ll see the HTTP request in the browser address bar, for example:
The API provides programmatic access to everything on Enigma Public, subject to the Terms of Service. For a quick tutorial on using the API, see Getting started with the API. For detailed information about using the API, see the Enigma Public API Reference.
