Wherobots open data

Wherobots collects and maintains open datasets from various data sources for use by Wherobots Cloud users. Those datasets are cleaned and transformed into Havasu format for fast and efficient analytics with WherobotsDB in Wherobots Cloud.

These datasets are available for free within Wherobots Cloud, with a subset of them reserved to our Professional Edition users. If you are interested in upgrading your plan, please contact us.

Accessing open data

Catalogs for the open data your account has access to are automatically configured in your environment's SedonaContext, and can be directly referenced by the following format: CATALOG_NAME.DATABASE_NAME.TABLE_NAME.

Users can read these tables by calling sedona.table(CATALOG_NAME.DATABASE_NAME.TABLE_NAME).show().

Inspecting open data catalogs

You can inspect the existing databases and tables in a catalog as follows:
