Iggy Open Data

We’ve done the drudgework of sourcing, interpreting, and cleaning geographic datasets. It should be easier for data scientists and machine learning engineers to access these data. That’s why we’re releasing ready-to-ingest versions of these datasets so that you can get to work faster.

What’s the difference between Features and Properties?

A Feature is a thing in the world with a geometry and a set of Properties. A Feature’s geometry defines its location. Geometries have types. A Point geometry represents a specific point on the globe, a single longitude and latitude. A Polygon geometry represents a shape that defines a thing or area.

Properties describe a feature. A Feature’s properties are an arbitrary set of key/value pairings like total population: 27465 or bicycle_access: True. Within a dataset, all Features share the same types of key/value pairings (though some can have a null value).

What’s here?

Iggy’s open datasets come in two formats: CSV and GeoJSON.

In CSV format, each row represents a feature. There is always a geometry column that provides the feature geometry in Well-known Text (WKT) string format. The remaining columns each represent a property.

In GeoJSON format, each row is a JSON string giving the geojson representation of a single feature. The JSON has a key ”geometry” that provides the geometry type and coordinates, and a key ”properties” that details the feature property key value pairs.
