Data Service

Access and analyse the big datasets in a cloud-native environment.

The datasets on the platform range from satellite imagery in many spectral bands to real-time shipping and flight data with hundreds of millions of data points to analyse. The data service is designed to handle additional datasets from our partners and when combined with the cloud native Developer and Methods Services provides a uniquely powerful toolset.

The Data Service is built on our multi-cloud platform to provide agnostic access to datasets with robust access and privacy preserving processing controls.

The Data Service is built on our multi-cloud platform to provide agnostic access to datasets with robust access and privacy preserving processing controls.

As part of the pilot in the early phases of the platform we introduced the AIS and ADS-B datasets as the most useful and indicative Big Data sources to provide an active and intensive testbed for Big Data statistical analysis and methods development.

These datasets now comprise 100,000,000+ ADS-B Records and 80,000,000 AIS Records (per day).

Global ADS-B Data Feed

This live data stream and the dataset is provided by a cooperative of ADS-B/Mode S/MLAT feeders from around the world and is the world’s largest source of unfiltered flight data.

Global AIS Data Feed

The AIS data stream and dataset delivers the most complete situational picture of global vessel activity by drawing data from both satellite and terrestrial AIS receivers.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Indicators

SDG indicators are a global indicator framework for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and succeed the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) which ended in 2015. They include indicators and statistical data to monitor progress, inform policy and ensure accountability of all stakeholders for the 17 goals set by the United Nations. Data available is from the early 1990’s to present and covers economic and social development issues including poverty, hunger, health, education, social justice, water, sanitation and many more.

Neilsen Scanner Data

This dataset from Nielsen contains weekly detailed (barcode level) data for five product groups covering a three year period. The dataset is intended to support training and testing activities promoting the use of scanner data in the compilation of Consumer Price Indexes. The data is available to all users of the Global Platform.

Scanner data is a Big Data source being increasing used in national statistical systems for the calculation of price indices as statistical offices explore ways to meet the expectation of society for enhanced products and improved, more efficient ways of working.
