Access

Project representatives confirmed via email:

As for bulk downloads of data... We currently offer the following:

We realize that we could be doing more in this area, though. A few things we're planning to do:

  • Provide a bulk download of our complete RDF (similar to how one can get complete dbpedia exports)
  • Provide a better way to find various datasets (and download them in various formats, such as RDF and CSV)
  • Provide a mechanism for submitting bulk datasets which is separate from, but complementary to, our Wiki)
