Google’s BigQuery Provides Free Access to GDELT

Link

We blogged about GDELT before. This is awesome news. Hats off to Google.

Another post about more details of technology. Anyone with Google Cloud account can try this out (free to sign-up). I just did and ran this query:

SELECT count(1) FROM [gdelt-bq:full.events]

Received result

266301241

Cool.
