This is the full resolution GDELT event dataset running January 1, 1979 through March 31, 2013 and containing all data fields for each event record. The years 1979 through 2005, inclusive, are available as yearly downloads containing all records for each year, while starting in January 2006 data is available as monthly downloads due to the larger number of records per month over time.
This could be great to categorize events (text mining) and to include in time series and predictive models, e.g. for economic forecast, stock market signals, presidential election forecast etc.
