Awesome list of datasets in 100+ categories


With an estimated 44 zettabytes of data in existence in our digital world today and approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data generated daily, there is a lot of data out there you could tap into for your data science projects. It's pretty hard to curate through such a massive universe of data, but this collection is a great start. Here, you can find data from cancer genomes to UFO reports, as well as years of air quality data to 200,000 jokes. Dive into this ocean of data to explore as you learn how to apply data science techniques or leverage your expertise to discover something new.



By Etienne D. Noumen, Senior Software Engineer.

Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data, and apply knowledge and actionable insights from data across a broad range of application domains.

In this blog, we provide links to popular open-source and public data sets, data visualizations, data analytics resources, and data lakes.

Flight Records in the US

Airline On-Time Performance and Causes of Flight Delays – On_Time Data.

This database contains scheduled and actual departure and arrival times, reason of delay. reported by certified U.S. air carriers that account for at least one percent of domestic scheduled passenger revenues. The data is collected by the Office of Airline Information, Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS).

FlightAware.com has data but you need to pay for a full dataset.

The anyflights package supplies a set of functions to generate air travel data (and data packages!) similar to nycflights13. With a user-defined year and airport, the anyflights function will grab data on:

  • flights: all flights that departed a given airport in a given year and month
  • weather: hourly meterological data for a given airport in a given year and month
  • airports: airport names, FAA codes, and locations
  • airlines: translation between two letter carrier (airline) codes and names
  • planes: construction information about each plane found in flights

Airline On-Time Statistics and Delay Causes

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) tracks the on-time performance of domestic flights operated by large air carriers. Summary information on the number of on-time, delayed, canceled and diverted flights appears in DOT’s monthly Air Travel Consumer Report, published about 30 days after the month’s end, as well as in summary tables posted on this website. BTS began collecting details on the causes of flight delays in June 2003. Summary statistics and raw data are made available to the public at the time the Air Travel Consumer Report is released. Access it here

 

Worldwide flight data

Open flights: As of January 2017, the OpenFlights Airports Database contains over 10,000 airports, train stations and ferry terminals spanning the globe

Download: airports-extended.dat (Airports, train stations and ferry terminals, including user contributions)

Bureau of Transportation:

Flightera.net seems to have a lot of good data for free. It has in-depth data on flights and doesn’t seem limited by date. I can’t speak on the validity of the data though.

flightradar24.com has lots of data, also historically, they might be willing to help you get it in a nice format.

The AQS Data Mart is a database containing all of the information from AQS. It has every measured value the EPA has collected via the national ambient air monitoring program. It also includes the associated aggregate values calculated by EPA (8-hour, daily, annual, etc.). The AQS Data Mart is a copy of AQS made once per week and made accessible to the public through web-based applications. The intended users of the Data Mart are air quality data analysts in the regulatory, academic, and health research communities. It is intended for those who need to download large volumes of detailed technical data stored at EPA and does not provide any interactive analytical tools. It serves as the back-end database for several Agency interactive tools that could not fully function without it: AirData, AirCompare, The Remote Sensing Information Gateway, the Map Monitoring Sites KML page, etc.
