Download a copy of the National Counterterrorism Center WITS dataset



I downloaded the publicly available dataset "National Counterterrorism Center WITS dataset" and started to poke around a bit. The download consisted of a zip file with text files or an Oracle dump (which is what I tried out).

Here's the link: http://www.terrorismknowledgebase.org/NCTCdata.jsp



Not sure what I'm going to do with the data, it's just good to have a free dataset to play around with for demo purposes. The INCIDENT table looks to have data up to the end of June 2007, making the data not so timely. Like I said though, it's good to have datasets like this available so that people can do Proof-of-Concepts on them (just like the AOL search dataset that was released last year.

Until next time...Rich
