Download Public Data from Opendatasoft
Opendatasoft offers a number of public datasets available as APIs through the OpenDataSoft Dataset Explorer. However, many of these datasets do not come with a download option, but are rather served as a public API you can make requests against. Some of these APIs don’t have any query parameters and just dump out the entire dataset as a large JSON array.
While you’re welcome to ingest this data as JSON text, parse it, and write a program to go through it all, this can sometimes be a little too much work for just doing basic data analysis, where working with the data in CSV format is preferred. This is where our service comes in, allowing you to download this public data from Opendatasoft as CSV files instead of JSON. We simply query their API on your behalf and parse out the response into downloadable CSV files. Give some of the endpionts on this page a try to download sample data for free and simply reach out to support here if you need us to support additional Opendatasoft APIs.
