How GeoQuery works
GeoQuery performs advanced spatial statistics to extract data from open-source datasets on topics on such as:
- International Aid
- Population and the Environment
- Conflict and Health
- Economic Development
- Access to Infrastructure
Every data request you make returns an email with a single CSV where each row is a geographic boundary and each column is a requested dataset. This file can be read by nearly all software packages, and we also include a full PDF of metadata. All requests are made accessible at a unique, permanent URL to promote data sharing. See our Quick Start Guide.
