Researcher's Corner We are gathering data, you want it

We've been gathering all this really nice data, and we think we're doing a pretty OK job at displaying and analyzing it, but we also know that there's a lot of really intelligent people out there, people like you, that want to use this data in their research, or maybe think there are better correlations to be shown in our platform. This is the place to congregate, get some of this sweet, sweet, data and also collaborate on making this an even better platform.

Data Export Grab everything you want

XML
Extensible Markup Language

The most obiquitous way to exchange data. This option guarantees compatibility with any programming language. It's specially useful if you want to use MATLAB or GNU Octave.

JSON
JavaScript Object Notation

A modern way to interact with our data using programming languages. This option will give you a lot more flexibility if you want to use things like Python or R to work with our data.

CSV
Comma Separated Values

The easiest way to use our data. You can open this file in software packages like Excel and LibreOffice Calc and easily interact with the data yourself without any programming required.

MySQL
Database Dump

A partial dump of our MySQL database, only with the important information for research, and no sensitive data.

This option has the highest barrier of entry, but will give you the most flexibility out of all the options in here.

Correlation Between Online Time and Food Bought at the Cafeteria

I've compiled a very interesting correlation between the time users are online inside IADE's building and the amount of food bought at the cafeteria.

Infographic of the Habits of IADE Students

I've used the information provided by this platform, combined with other datasets, to create an interesting data visualization project in the form of an infographic about IADE's students habits in general. Forget all that, this is just an example, the infographic shown is from StudyBlue.
