Données Open Data du CRAIG

January 25, 2016

Le CRAIG met à disposition un certain nombre de données en Open Data, sous la licence ouverte etalab. Ces données sont téléchargeables par FTP sur le serveur FTP opendata du CRAIG, et représentent un volume total d’environ 485Go. Il est conseillé d’utiliser un client FTP tel que FileZilla pour accéder à ce serveur, mais un navigateur web suffit amplement.

  • Les données d’orthophotographie (IRC/infrarouge et RVB/couleurs naturelles) sur la région et les agglomérations d’Auvergne sont en projection Lambert 93, et au format ECW. Le format GeoTIFF est disponible sur demande, et la mise à disposition des données au format standard JPEG2000 est à l’étude.
  • Elles sont ou découpées en dalles de 1.5Km de coté (750m pour les agglomérations), ou disponibles sous forme de fichiers comprenant l’ensemble du département, ou sous forme de réechantillonages.
  • Les réechantillonages à l’échelle départementale sont disponibles avec des résolutions de 30cm, 1.5m, 3m, 6m, 12m et 24m.
  • Les images brutes de la prise de vue aérienne sont disponibles sur demande (l’ensemble représente un volume de 12To). Une image à 30cm de résolution pèse 560Mo, une image à 15cm sur une agglomération pèse 390Mo.
  • Les données de MNT sont disponibles en projection Lambert 93, et au format ASCII. Des fichiers contenant l’ensemble de chacune des zones sont aussi disponibles.
  • Sur la zone du site du Puy de Dôme sont disponibles les produits ayant servi au projet LIDARVERNE : une orthophographie à 10cm, un MNT à 50cm ainsi que les nuages de points bruts LIDAR.
  • Les nuages de point LIDAR sont disponibles au format LASZIP sur l’agglomération du Puy en Velay et les départements du Cantal et de la Haute-Loire.
  • Les fiches de métadonnées au format XML ISO19139 sont disponibles pour chacune des données, dans les répertoires correspondants.

These data indicate change within forests at different resolutions, frequencies, and geographic extents. The UMD/Google tree cover loss and gain data, near real-time forest alerts, and active fire data can be found here.


These data represent types of forest cover at different resolutions and geographic extents. Forest types such as mangroves, Intact Forest Landscapes, primary forests, and carbon stocks can be found here.


These data represent ways humans use forests, such as allocating forests for agricultural concessions or infrastructure development.


These data represent forest conservation and preservation efforts, as well as areas that are important to biodiversity and natural resources.


These data represent areas over which indigenous peoples or local communities have rights over land and/or certain resources. Data such as forest management units and indigenous reserves can be found here.

NYC – Taxy and Limosine Commission – TLC Trip Record Data

January 18, 2016

This dataset includes trip records from all trips completed in yellow and green taxis in NYC in 2014 and select months of 2015. Records include fields capturing pick-up and drop-off dates/times, pick-up and drop-off locations, trip distances, itemized fares, rate types, payment types, and driver-reported passenger counts. The data used in the attached datasets were collected and provided to the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) by technology providers authorized under the Taxicab & Livery Passenger Enhancement Programs (TPEP/LPEP). The  trip data was not created by the TLC, and TLC makes no representations as to the accuracy of these data.

Open Data Kit (ODK)

April 13, 2014

Open Data Kit (ODK)

Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open-source set of tools which help organizations author, field, and manage mobile data collection solutions. ODK provides an out-of-the-box solution for users to:

  1. Build a data collection form or survey (XLSForm is recommended for larger forms);
  2. Collect the data on a mobile device and send it to a server; and
  3. Aggregate the collected data on a server and extract it in useful formats.

In addition to socio-economic and health surveys with GPS locations and images, ODK is being used to create decision support for clinicians and for building multimedia-rich nature mapping tools. See the list available toolsfeatured deployments, andimplementation companies for more examples of what the ODK community is doing.

We welcome and encourage participation from the user community. ODK is supported by a growing community of developers, implementers and users as well as various companies. Core ODK development is supported by ongoing research at the University of Washington’s Department of Computer Science & Engineering and through donationsfrom users.

The Lionel Pincus & Princess Firyal Map Division is very proud to announce the release of more than 20,000 cartographic works as high resolution downloads. We believe these maps have no known US copyright restrictions.* To the extent that some jurisdictions grant NYPL an additional copyright in the digital reproductions of these maps, NYPL is distributing these images under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication. The maps can be viewed through the New York Public Library’s Digital Collections page, and downloaded (!), through the Map Warper. First, create an account, then click a map title and go. Here’s a primer and more extended blog post on the warper.
