Open-source Data Science Toolkit

Posted to Software  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Pete Warden does the data community a solid and wraps up a collection of open-source tools in the Data Science Toolkit to parse, geocode, and process data.

A collection of the best open data sets and open-source tools for data science, wrapped in an easy-to-use REST/JSON API with command line, Python and Javascript interfaces. Available as a self-contained VM or EC2 AMI that you can deploy yourself.

Many of the services are available via public APIs, but the usual benefits apply of running your own service such as privacy, independence, and no limits. Hit your machine with as many requests as you want. The code is available in its entirety on GitHub.
